Bouchard Finlayson "Crocodile's Lair"
South Africa, Overberg 75cl
Lovely nose of citrus and gentle nutty toasty French oak. Medium body on the palate, it displays lovely citrus and peach fruit, good acidity and well integrated oak that adds body and length without overpowering. Good weight of fruit, it has a peachy richness but the tangy acidity keeps it freh. Long finish. Not hugely complex , but a really good mouthfull.It will develop too. Will arrive in September and fairly priced at around a tenner.
