Wine maker notes
The birth of Hannibal extends back in time to our importation of the first Sangiovese and Nebbilo plant material into SA in 1989. These imports experienced twelve years in the development process, first from cuttings and expansion of plant material to the final realisation of the first bottled wine which was released in Dec 2001. Hannibal stands alone by its design and presentation as an individualistic blend of classic Italian and French varieties. In short the name portrays the link between France and Italy with Hannibal the conqueror’s symbolism of the elephants crossing the Alps (as Africa’s association of origin and connection to this wine). Worldly recognized and respected for its commanding taste profile, which is best described as a symphony of flavours. It is both bold and complex with notable back-palate structure while it’s collection of different varieties present a harmonious flavour balance. The colour is marvellously crimson and bright. The composition represents Sangiovese at 39% while the Pinot noir portion is 35%. The remaining 26% is a mix of cultivars consisting of Nebbiolo 10%, Shiraz 9%, Barbera 4% and Mouvedre 3%. Showing both power and finesse it gives way to gentle flavours of black cherry, spice and strawberry. While very approachable at an early age it will mature handsomely over many years ahead!

Producer
Established in 1989, Bouchard Finlayson is a boutique winery dedicated to the making of Pinot noir, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc wines of outstanding quality. Located in the wine ward of Walker Bay, an hour and a half from Cape Town, the 125-hectare property currently has 22 hectares under vines; the rest is mountain land, covered by the spectacular indigenous ‘fynbos’ flora of the Western Cape. With only a small portion of the farm under vine Bouchard Finlayson is able to ensure the conservancy of the mountain land. Bouchard Finlayson’s flagship wine is the Galpin Peak Pinot Noir, which has won many an award and accolade. Growing on the slopes of Galpin Peak, repeated vintages of this path-blazing wine continue to reflect a true celebration of Pinot-crafting, consistently endorsing the Hemel-en-Aarde Valley as a jewel in the hunt for this illusive grape. Bouchard Finlayson is renowned as one of South Africa’s top wineries and this can be attributed to their philosophy and focus to produce wines of the finest quality. The surrounding coastal town of Hermanus lures tourists and locals to partake in many exciting adventures. Hermanus is famous for the Whales that venture into their waters, Shark cage diving is another great attraction for the brave and courageous. If you prefer to keep your feet on the land, Hermanus surrounding mountains offers the most fantastic hiking trails with spectacular views.
