Bin: 204
Alcohol Percentage: 13.5%
Area: From their website:
"Crocodile’s Lair vineyard is hidden away in the Elands Kloof Valley behind the village of Villiersdorp, just 80km from Hermanus. A beautiful spot inside a blind valley nestled amongst majestic mountains. Bouchard Finlayson has been linked directly to this vineyard for close to twenty-four years. It is located 700m above sea level, ripens a month later than other Cape Chardonnays and benefits enormously from cool autumn temperatures. The vines are not irrigated and they produce small berries of high skin to juice ratio, which adds an extra flavour component to this superior wine."
Grape Variety: Chardonnay, fermented (as whole bunches) and matured for 8 months in French oak (around one fifth new wood).
Old Bridge Rating: Bouchard Finlayson wines normally sell in restaurants. In the current situation they are keen to offer reduced prices to move some stock!
