Missionvale Chardonnay 2018, Bouchard Finlayson

£23.15 per bottle

About this wine

Bouchard Finlayson Missionvale is an invitingly rich wooded Chardonnay with grapes all harvested from this Estate to create one of South Africa’s finest Chardonnays.  The 2018 vintage is invitingly rich, with textbook mineral intensity slicing through bright peach and fresh grapefruit flavours whilst exhibiting ginger, nutmeg and spiced notes. Balanced beams of oak and fruit complexities are focussed by a refreshing lemon rind finish. Lingers effortlessly.

Food pairing: Scallops with French celeriac & granny smith apple puree. Whole Salmon on the BBQ, liberally basted with garlic butter, or freshly schucked oysters.

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."
