Blanc de Mer, Bouchard Finlayson 2017


Blanc de Mer is an unusual blend from the Cape where Riesling is virtually unknown as a blending partner; this is a wine with a lot of personality.

Hints of quince, apricot and almonds with a comforting creamy middle and a bold seamless surround. The 2017 vintage is fresh and vibrant, with a convincing strength and quality finish. Bottled for the first time under screwcap!

Vintage 2017 presented a low yield, but fortunately turned out to be a high quality happening. The summer weather pattern was decidedly dry, a situation which impacted in supporting a modest harvest. These mild conditions culminated in a quality vintage that helped set the foundation for a high standard and fine wine expectations from 2017.

The grapes were pressed whole bunch and clear juice was fermented cold where the eventual wine was left to evolve on the primary lees until blended and prepared for bottling.
