Bouchard Finlayson Oak Valley Sauvignon Blanc 1998

A great big concentrated Sauvignon with excellent gooseberry, cantaloupe and fig flavours. Good structure and fine length with a solid alcohol arising from excellent grape sugars at crush. Fabulous as an aperitif, but best with food. Delicious with oysters, antipastas and crustaceans and lightly sauced fish dishes.
