Bouchard Finlayson Pinot Blanc/Chardonnay 1999

The Pinot Blanc portion (54%) is barrel fermented and matured in oak for 6 months, giving it a rich and elegant structure. The Chardonnay portion is un-oaked, complementing the Pinot Blanc with strong mineral elements. Will age well. This wine is best enjoyed at the table. The rich mineral elements make it a natural match with crayfish, shrimp and other strong flavoured seafood dishes. Ideal for the red meat lover who does not drink red wine.
