Description

The Hemel-en-Aarde Valley and its associated terroir has proven itself to be one of the Cape’s most treasured Chardonnay locations. The name Missionvale stems from the mission hospital established on the domain property in the early 19th Century. All grapes are harvested from this Estate to create one of the finest Chardonnays, taking advantage of the valley’s cool maritime climate to produce a wine that balances textbook minerality and citrus notes on a foundation of well-integrated oak richness. Fermented and aged in both oak barrels and terracotta amphorae, it’s a fine example of the ongoing innovation in the Bouchard Finlayson cellar.

Rabbit And Mustard

Perfect to enjoy with rabbit and wholegrain mustard sauce...

Rabbit, Hare, Woodpigeon and Duck are examples of “medium” meats that are lighter in colour and have less of a gamey flavour compared to darker meats. The classic dish of Rabbit with wholegrain mustard sauce matches superbly with a good, buttery Chardonnay such as this one from South Africa. This has enough acidity to cut through the creaminess of the sauce, and enough richness to balance out the mustard, avoid anything too tropically in this instance as to avoid over-powering the dish.
