Bouchard Finlayson Blanc de Mer 2004

International Wine Challenge 2005 - Seal of Approval
Powerful but restrained.The palate is rich and creamy with a hint of green apple and melon.The finish is firm which makes the wine seem almost dry despite some residual grape sugar.

The name Blanc de Mer serves to remind one of its position with seafood. Served well chilled, it is ideal with oysters, salmon and fresh line fish.

AWARDS
Historically Blanc de Mer has been respected for its position as an entry to the Bouchard Finlayson 'entertaining in style' philosophy. It has always consisted of four or five different varieties. This vintage represents four different grape varieties. Some mid February rains reduced the Riesling & Pinot Blanc crop but in the process retained excellent fruit character, which has played handsomely into enhancing the character of this bottling.
