Bouchard Finlayson Blanc de Mer (2023)

New

Upon opening a bottle, exotic aromas of white peach, dried apricots, jasmine and ripe litchis fill the nose. Floral and aromatic, the wine extends to form an impression of pineapple flesh, syrupy green figs, quince.An energetic acidity profile is well balanced and completed by a rich palate of fruity sweetness. The experience is enticing and rounded, with a focussed finish driven by saline elements. As fresh as a sea breeze now,but will develop a layered complexity with time in the bottle.

    Moderate and mild winter weather was experienced with an average rainfall, which continued into spring and early summer. These conditions, ideal for slow and even ripening, were interrupted during the middle of December, with the arrival of some refreshing showers. January saw a continuation of dry, cool conditions, coinciding neatly with an earlier maturity of those cultivars that usually ripen first. During the third week of February however, a massive 80mm downpour set the tone for the rest of the vintage. By the last day of picking, 240mm had fallen since the start of harvest. Rigorous selection of only the ripe and healthy bunches proved critical. Most vineyards cropped lower than the long-term average, largely due to adverse flowering conditions
