Olivia and I had this wine on our honeymoon in the middle of the bush in Botswana, some 15 years later we still stock this fab wine. Peter Finlayson has been a pioneer of quality wines from South Africa.
The Kaaimansgat or Crocodile’s Lair vineyard is hidden away in the Elands Kloof Valley behind the village of Villiersdorp, just 80km from Hermanus. A beautiful spot inside a blind valley nestled amongst majestic mountains.
This is from that single vineyard; displays lovely citrus, appley notes but interwoven toasty buttery oak notes, having spent 8 months in French oak barrels. 13.5% vol.
