Bouchard Finlayson’s 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. This intriguing blend of 69% Riesling, 20% Viognier, 9% Chardonnay and 2% Sauvignon Blanc offers wave upon wave of refreshing pineapple and apricot fruit purity, packed with floral perfume. Silken richness and elegance combine to entice the senses. A lemony persistence, with saline highlights, makes for an appealing finish.
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.
Ageing potential: Great now, but will develop additional complexity.
Food pairing: Effortless drinking qualities make the Blanc de Mer a popular aperitif, however it’s suitability to fresh seafood is unmatched – think Thai red prawn curry, bouillabaisse or simply oysters.
Alcohol: 13.06% ABV
