Bouchard Finlayson Blanc De Mer 2015

The Blanc De Mer has been a very popular wine for Bouchard Finlayson for the last twenty years so you can be assured of the quality of this white blend. The wine is noticeably fragrant on the nose which is certainly as a result of the high percentages of Riesling and Viognier. It displays a Chardonnay structure and lots of body, with flavours of plum, pear, Cape gooseberry and strawberry, culminating in a juicy aftertaste.

Food Pairing    

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

Blanc de Mer offers more than it portrays and its Riesling pedigree boasts lots of strong personality. It is an unusual blend from the Cape where Riesling is virtually unknown as a blending partner. The name Blanc de Mer translates to ‘White of the Sea’. Inspired by the estate’s close proximity to our coastal town Hermanus where the Southern Right whales come to calve during the months of late winter towards the end of spring.
