Region: Hemel-en-Aarde Valley
Established in 1989, Bouchard Finlayson is a boutique winery dedicated to the making of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc wines of outstanding quality. Located in the wine ward of Walker Bay, an hour and a half from Cape Town, the 125 hectare property currently has 22 hectares under vines, the rest is mountain land, covered by the spectacular indigenous ‘fynbos’ flora of the Western Cape. With only a small portion of the farm under vine Bouchard Finlayson is able to ensure the conservancy of the mountain land.
100% Pinot noir
A great vintage with trophy winning quality! Medium dark with black-red colour. Explosive nose of red fruits and infused cherry, the palate projects cranberry and plum with smoky strawberry high tones. Bright with a good grip and velvety mouthfeel with considerable ageing potential.
A flavour rich Pinot noir like this can be enjoyed with fresh beef carpaccio, served with rocket and a drizzle of Balsamic vinegar.
