Description

Bouchard Finlayson Missionvale Chardonnay 2017

Cream, creamy, delightful creaminess. This outstanding wine opens with a nose of mild wood tones surrounded by lovely stone fruits and oaky vanilla butter. Dry, refreshing and savoury with a broad yet harmonious palate. Displays flavours of pineapple, white peach, quince, lime and lemon citrus, with the slightest hint of toasted hazelnut. The seamless, polished and creamy texture floats easily into a long vanilla and quince finish.

This wine will enhance with longevity and age.

Fun Fact: The name Missionvale originates from the historical mission hospital established on the domain property in the early 19th Century by Moravian Missionary Peter Leitner, who adopted this beautiful valley.

The Hemel-en-Aarde Valley and its associated terroir have proven itself to be one of the Western Cape’s most treasured Chardonnay locations. All grapes are harvested at optimal ripeness from Bouchard Finlayson’s Estate to create one of the finest Chardonnays. Bouchard Finlayson’s Chardonnay vineyards are planted exclusively to the 95 clone – particularly successful in the Hemel-en-Aarde and known for its structural intensity.

Bunches are pressed without crushing and settled overnight, before being transferred to French oak barrels. Here temperatures are monitored during the peak of fermentation, while the lees is left undisturbed and only partial malolactic fermentation permitted – in order to retain freshness. A third new oak was employed and maturation on primary lees took place for nine months.
