Bouchard Finlayson Blanc De Mer is a lip-smacking, cool climate blend that is the perfect partner to fish, shellfish and white meats. It has a fragrant, Riesling dominated nose of grape, lime and peach fruit with a lovely weight of fruit on the palate and a luscious but mouthwatering finish. The richness of Viognier is countered by the Riesling's acidity and the Chardonnay's structure, followed by honeyed white fruit, lime and cape gooseberry flavours.

The first step was to pay particular attention to the pressing of these lovely grapes. This was a lengthy three hour event to ensure maximum extraction from the whole bunch pressing process. Fermentation commenced in tank and transfer to best French oak barrels was commenced once the fermentation temperature was firmly under control. 29% new oak was employed and maturation on primary lees took place for eleven months.
