Kaaimansgat Limited Edition 2014

Kaaimansgat Limited Edition 2014

Quick Overview

Chardonnay is considered the top white cultivar worldwide. Our winemaker’s love of innovation led him to blend a classic barrel-fermented portion of Chardonnay with a fruity non-malo unwooded portion. The result is our Kaaimansgat Limited Edition. The Crocodile’s Lair vineyard is hidden in the Elandskloof Valley near the village of Villiersdorp, just eighty kilometres from Hermanus. A beautiful spot inside a blind valley and nestled among majestic mountains, Bouchard Finlayson has been linked directly to this vineyard for close to twenty five years. At 700 metres above sea level, our vines ripen a month later than other Cape Chardonnays and benefit enormously from cool autumn temperatures. Deliberately unirrigated, they produce small berries of high skin to juice ratio, which adds an extra flavour component to this superior wine.
