Missionvale Chardonnay 2016, B. Finlayson

£23.15 per bottle

About this wine

If Crocodile’s Lair is the Burgundian interpretation of Chardonnay, then Bouchard Finlayson’s Missionvale is their New World take.  A commanding wine with solid backbone and a lengthy, lingering palate.  Flavours of pear and melon enhanced by peachy taste sips offer a lively and long lasting mouth feel. Wonderful wood maturation has complimented to offer complexity and structure which will grow and embolden this wine over the next five years.  Expect nutty flavoured integration as the aging process evolves.

FOOD PAIRING: Soft cheese, fish pâté, Bouillabaisse or flavoured fish will all work splendidly with this vintage, as well as chicken or sushi dishes.

The Hemel-en-Aarde Valley and its associated terroir has proven itself to be one of the Cape’s most treasured Chardonnay
locations. The name Missionvale stems from the mission hospital established on the domain property in the early 19th Century. All grapes are harvested from this Estate to create one of the finest Chardonnays.

    string(513) "Possibly the most famous grape variety in the world, Chardonnay has found a home in pretty much every corner of the wine world. From crisp, flinty Chablis styles to full-bodied, oaky, rich Napa Valley Chardonnay it is a variety which has the ability to morph according to the climate or winemaking philosophy. It also has the capacity to produce amongst the greatest white wines in the world. Some praise indeed for this chameleon variety, the likes of which may only truly be matched by Riesling or Chenin Blanc."
