Crocodile’s Lair Chardonnay 2018, Bouchard Finlayson

£17.90 per bottle

About this wine

Bouchard Finlayson’s Crocodile’s Lair Chardonnay comes from the single Kaaimansgat (Crocodile) vineyard in the cool-climate Overberg.  Sleek and refined, a most enjoyable spicy lemon drop aroma complexity announces white peach, nectarine and pear flavour delight. A refreshing salinity graces a lasting finish.  Ageing potential is excellent.

Food pairing: Serve with pan-fried Porcini mushrooms on bruschetta, freshly boiled Rock Lobster tail dipped in lemon aioli or simply from your favourite Chardonnay glass in good company.

From crisp, flinty Chablis styles to full-bodied, oaky, rich Napa Valley Chardonnay it is a variety which has the ability to morph according to the climate or winemaking philosophy. It also has the capacity to produce amongst the greatest white wines in the world. Some praise indeed for this chameleon variety, the likes of which may only truly be matched by Riesling or Chenin Blanc."
