Bouchard Finlayson Blanc de Mer

The Riesling component is now dominant with a notably fragrant nose, ample body and luscious finish. Best described as a kaleidoscope of flavours with a solid Chardonnay structure. Bright fruits and repeated flavours of pear, plum, apricot, custard apple and gooseberry.

About the Winery

In a hidden valley at the Southern tip of the new world lies a winery that combines the best of the old ways with a streak of innovation and creativity. Established in 1989, Bouchard Finlayson is located in the internationally acclaimed wine region of Walker Bay in the Western Cape. The 125-hectare property has only 22 hectares under vine with the rest left wild as a conservancy of pristine indigenous Fynbos flora. The winery began as collaboration between Paul Bouchard, celebrated Burgundian winemaker, and locally awarded talent, Peter Finlayson. Together, they broke the soil, planted the vines and built the cellar that would become world-renowned as Bouchard Finlayson.

Food Pairings

Aptly named, the wine pairs beautifully with shellfish and seafood, especially oysters and Sushi. Also wonderful as an aperitif with a fresh garden salad or Indian and Asian-spiced dishes.
