Bouchard Finlayson Hannibal 2019 is an interesting and unique blend of 47% Sangiovese; 15% Nebbiolo; 14% Pinot Noir; 11% Shiraz; 7% Mourvedre and 6% Barbera. Aromatic leather, cured meat and violet notes frame flavours of red cherry, liquorice and rooibos (redbush) tea. Surprisingly taut and fine-grained, it displays polish and intense complexity. Hints of tobacco on the finish, while fresh acidity keeps the balance.
Ageing Potential: Drink now through 2029.
Food Pairing: Hannibal is a hugely versatile match for a range of dishes, but it works especially well with Indian and other spicy cuisine. Pair it with a Cape Vegetable Biryani, Mauritian seafood Vindaye or simply goats cheese served on brioche toast.
Originally prompted by the classic taste and palate of Italian varieties: Sangiovese and Nebbiolo. The importation of these grape varieties in 1989 led to the development of this highly successful blend, with the first commercial launch of the Hannibal label 12 years later. The name Hannibal was adopted as a symbolic expression of the synergy with the African elephant participating in linking the wine lands of France and Italy together two thousand years ago under the invading command of the classic Carthaginian general.
