Bouchard Finlayson Walker Bay Sauvignon Blanc 1999

All the wine is made from domaine grapes. A mouth-watering Sauvignon with apple, melon & lime & herb flavours lingering on an invigorating finish. With food: Fabulous as an aperitif but best with food. Delicious with oysters, antipastas, crustaceans and lightly sauced fish dishes.

in the cellar : Record rains in December & January pushed our viticultural skills to the limit but also provided greater leaf canopy with consequent abundance of flavour precursors, setting the stage for a prized vintage. The wet summer weather was in contrast with that of Paarl and Stellenbosch which suffered hot and dry conditions. Not unexpectedly a measure of bunch rot made for selective hand picking so that only the top quality fruit arrived at the winery. Much effort but greatly rewarded.
