Bouchard Finlayson Chardonnay Sans Barrique


South Africa

Bouchard Finlayson Sans Barrique2016, 750 ml

This is Bouchard Finlayson’s 15th vintage edition of Sans Barrique Chardonnay.

Chardonnay is an extremely versatile grape and unwooded Chardonnay is no rarity to the world of Chardonnay.

The factor of wooding (or not wooding) can make a huge difference to its flavour and aroma. In many instances the unwooded version of the variety is a better accompaniment to fish and shellfish than the wooded version.

These grapes originate from the tall mountains behind the village of Villiersdorp.

Conditions through the 2010/2011 growing season were dry which presented a small harvest of concentrated fruit. 

The wine is best described as marginally organic with citrus and kiwi fruit flavours.

Flinty and dry with intensity of finish after loads of strong mineral flavours.
