Sauvignon Blanc Reserve 2017, Bouchard Finlayson

£18.40 per bottle

About this wine

This “Reserve” edition of the Bouchard Finlayson Sauvignon Blanc can safely be considered to be a collector’s item.  Bouchard’s geographic location, lying within 5 kilometres of the cool Atlantic Ocean, offers the most ideal temperature zone of the Cape.  Added to this the heavy shale clay soil that tipifies the Hemel-en-Aarde Valley lends an inviting tropical tone to the flavour profile of this vintage. An undercurrent of spice and flint notes add complexity to the fruit bowl of
flavours, including fig, lemon zest and passion fruit, all integrating on a long lingering finish whilst the developing Semillon offers extra definition.  This wine pairs beautifully with fish dishes, crustaceans, sushi, vegetarian cuisine and cheese.

The variety has classic zingy freshness, citrus notes and in the case of Marlborough in particular, gooseberry aromatics and flavours. Very pure, it can often be opulent yet also the opposite, with taut mineral notes. A classic, modern varietal with huge popularity, usually unoaked, there are an increasing number of food-focused expressions with a little barrel maturation adding texture and lift."
