Hermanus, Western Cape
Cradled amid the hills of the Hemel-en-Aarde (Heaven and Earth) valley,
Bouchard Finlayson is widely acclaimed as one of South Africa’s leading boutique wine cellars.
With a terroir defined by both ancient soils and a cool maritime climate, the vineyards of Bouchard Finlayson are famous for producing award-winning
Pinot Noir, elegant Chardonnay and terroir-driven Sauvignon Blanc, while inspired blends showcase the depth of skill and innovation in our winemaking team.
The Bouchard Finlayson cellar is conveniently located a scenic 90 minutes’ drive from Cape Town, close to the world-famous whale-watching centre of Hermanus.
The vineyards of the Elandskloof Mountains are located 80-kilometres inland from Bouchard Finlayson. The perfect complement to our two wooded Chardonnays, this unoaked expression illustrates the diversity and versatility of this noble Burgundian cultivar. Fermented in stainless steel, with a short maturation on the lees, the Sans Barrique Chardonnay is vibrant in the glass, brimming with minerality, freshness and vitality. An ideal pairing with seafood, sushi and summer salads.
These grapes originate from a unique vineyard site, located amongst the tall mountains behind the village of Villiersdorp in the Elandskloof valley, Overberg.
