Description

Strong hints of peach and kiwi fruit with a few drops of lemon! Forward and appealing, perfectly suited for those who find wooded Chardonnays too powerful.

Independents Note

:The nose seems remarkably light at first but behind the fragrances there is some richer greengage. The palate has a mix of flavours fresh fruit underpinned by richer sweeter melon and greengage. There is a lot happening on the finish. Derek Smedley MW 90 pts



Un-oaked Chardonnays from France often have a flinty note, sometimes described as gout de pierre a fusil These are grown on Kimmeridge clay. The rich characteristic of this Bouchard Finlayson Sans Barrique also stems from clay based soils at the wonderful vineyard location in the Elandskloof Valley of Villiersdorp. Heavy clay and stony soils, un-irrigated with their excellent winter chill factor, all contribute to a very popular terroir influence on this wine.
