Bouchard Finlayson Hannibal shows both power and finesse like Hannibal himself, the palate has spicy tones overlaying a supple and gently leathery structure, which is emphasised by olive, black cherry and cranberry-laced flavours all kept fresh by a prickle of Italian-esque acidity. While very approachable now, Hannibal will mature handsomely for several years to come.

The birth of Hannibal dates back to Bouchard Finlayson's importing of the first Sangiovese and Nebbiolo vines into South Africa in 1989. Hannibal was twelve years in the development process, from taking cuttings and propagating the plant material to the bottling of the first vintage which was released in December, 2001.

The name Hannibal was adopted as a symbolic expression of the role played by the African elephant in linking the wine lands of France and Italy two thousand years ago under the command of the conquering Carthaginian general.

A fascinating blend of 33% Sangiovese, 22% Pinot Noir, 18% Shiraz, 17% Nebbiolo, 6% Mourvèdre, and 4% Barbera, and one that reflects many of their finest aspects.
