2015 Bouchard Finlayson

Grapes Riesling, Chardonnay, Viognier
Colour White
Origin South Africa
ABV 13.5%

Blanc de Mer is an unusual blend from the Cape where Riesling is vitually unknown as a blending partner. The name 'Blanc de Mer' translates to 'White of the Sea'. Inspired by the estate's proximity to the coastal town Hermanus where Southern Right whales come to calve. 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 cape gooseberry. 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. Rating: 91 L&S (Aug 2016)
