Bouchard Finlayson Walker Bay Sauvignon Blanc 2001

The nose is notably lively and aromatic with rich guava and pineapple nuances. The palate is gentle with a creamy blanket of ripe structured fruit languishing on an invigorating tide of teasing tastes! Fabulous as an aperitif, but best with food. Delicious with oysters, antipastas and crustaceans and lightly sauced fish dishes.

about the harvest: For most of the Cape Winelands the 2001 vintage suffered from lack of rain with vines battling to achieve quality. Hermanus and Walker Bay proved to be different where showers slotted in perfectly with the otherwise dry conditions. The fruit was unblemished and a little extra ripening has produced a wine of slightly higher alcohol than in the past!

in the cellar : All the wine is made from domain grapes.
