- Other Info:
- Originally prompted by the classic taste and palate of Italian varieties: Sangiovese and Nebbiolo. The importation of these grape varieties into South Africa in 1989 led to the development of this highly successful blend, with the first commercial launch of the Hannibal label 12 years later. The name Hannibal was adopted as a symbolic expression of the synergy with the African elephant participating in linking the wine lands of France and Italy together two thousand years ago under the invading command of the classic Carthaginian general.
Bouchard Finlayson are accredited by IPW - South Africa's voluntary environmental sustainability scheme for wine producers.
The Bouchard Finlayson Hannibal is fresh and alive with a characteristic Italian mouthfeel reflecting fruity complexity. Sangiovese dominated, Hannibal utilises a total of six varietals including Pinot Noir, Shiraz, Mourvèdre, Nebbiolo and Barbera. This is a unique collection of varieties but they all combine to achieve a harmonious orchestra of flavours where the essence of Italian food immediately comes to mind! Olive and red currant flavours combine with cranberry to result in a lingering finish and complex mouthfeel.
