Kaaimansgat / Crocodile's Lair 2016

Quick Overview

The Kaaimansgat or 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.

Deliciously complex and rich in fruit flavours, this wine offers an expanded taste expression. Gooseberry, sweet melon, jasmine and rose petal all combine to build on layers of a taste discovery. The nutty and creamy components will develop over time, enhancing the flavour with ageing.
Excellent with chicken, duck and rich seafood, this Chardonnay is also great company for vegetarian and cheese dishes.
