Free Delivery with Orders over £95
Bouchard Finlayson Crocodile's Lair Kaaimansgat Chardonnay was fermented in the classic Burgundian fashion and allowed to age in small barrels in contact with its lees. The wine displays a clean, mineral quality that reflects the vineyard's mountain terroir. Bright citrus fruit with floral notes and a lively palate, this is currently slightly closed and fresh but it will evolve to gradually offer more pronounced nutty and creamy components.

The vines are unirrigated and they produce small berries with a correspondingly high skin to juice ratio which, after a short period of maceration, adds an extra flavour component to this super wine. The dry nature of the Crocodile’s Lair vineyard also offers a distinctive mineral quality which permits a greater maturation potential.
