Bouchard Finlayson Blanc de Mer 2008

2009 Old Mutual Trophy Wine Show - Bronze medal (71/100)
2009 Decanter World Wine Awards - Bronze medal

"Best New World White - Stephen Spurrier"
This cuvee is distinguished by excellent fruit balance with no single element dominating. It is simultaneously luscious in the mouth, yet clean and refreshing on the finish. Fruit flavours dominate with kiwi, peaches, pineapple and honeysuckle presenting strong palate influence.

Blanc de Mer is probably the only white blend from the Cape which predominantly has Riesling as its principal component.

Blanc de Mer relates to sea foods, but do not hesitate in serving at all occasions.

in the vineyard : This vintage could at best be described as controversial. Weather dealt a mean pack of cards but fortunately good timing and many years of experience assisted in excellent results emerging in the final product.
