Bouchard Finlayson Blanc de Mer 2018:
This blend is both bold in colour and structure. The composition enjoys Riesling as the primary player, with Viognier secondary followed by Sauvignon Blanc, Chenin Blanc and Chardonnay. It has a deep colour with a very full palate feel. Very rich with tastes of peaches, quinces and pear which all blend to provide a strong and lengthy finish.
Bouchard Finlayson Sauvignon Blanc 2019:
Our geographic location lying within five kilometres of the cool Atlantic Ocean offers the best temperature zone that the Cape can contribute a strong vibrant aroma, tropical fruits of pineapple, litchi and granadilla. This is followed by a firm crisp palate signalling a determined structure with parallel fruit calling one straight back to the glass!
Bouchard Finlayson Sans Barrique Chardonnay 2018:
The rich characteristic of this wine stems from clay based soils at the vineyard location in the Elandskloof Valley of Villiersdorp. This un- oaked version of chardonnay has an emphatic fruit purity, minerality and length from tantalizingly luscious acidity. Strong hints of peach and kiwi fruit with a few drops of lemon!
One of South Africa’s most awarded boutique wine estates lies in a scenic valley, just an hour and a half from Cape Town, called Hemel-en-Aarde or Heaven-and-Earth. Framed by great fold mountains and breath-taking ocean views, it is one of the coolest wine-making regions in the Cape, with duplex soil structures and sun-facing slopes. The promise of the unique terroir is harnessed by winemaker Chris Albrecht in slow-ripened, flavour-rich wines of exceptional quality.
