The Sans Barrique Chardonnay from Bouchard Finlayson displays a delicately balanced profile of intricately layered tropical fruit flavours. A cascade of fresh green apple, kiwi, guava and lemon notes express their charm with pleasing intensity on the nose and palate. A second wave of fragrant peach and gooseberry flavours add to the wine’s fruit-forward appeal. The Sans Barrique Chardonnay shows a pleasing length and well-rounded finish, making this a generous and rewarding wine from start to finish.

The Estate 

These grapes originate from two locations – the Bouchard Estate and a unique vineyard site, located amongst the tall mountains behind the village of Villiersdorp in the Elandskloof valley, Overberg. The soils are clay-based and non-irrigated, capturing a very special terroir. Achieving the character associated with the best Chardonnay wines, usually also happens through maturing in French Oak barrels. In this instance, the Sans Barrique Cuvee enjoys no wood, which is the key to its crisp, clean personality.
