Bouchard Finlayson

Situated in South Africa’s Walker Bay, Bouchard Finlayson finds itself in one of the coolest wine-growing areas of the Cape. Here, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir prevail in the experienced hands of winemaker Peter Finlayson. A broad range of aromatic varietals complement and bolster the Bouchard Finlayson portfolio, indeed Hannibal is one of South Africa’s most unique (and awarded) red blends. A 5 Star Platter rating for their Galpin Peak Pinot Noir has anchored the estate at the very forefront of South African Pinot.

Tasting Notes

Beautiful colour, a bold palate complexity and an earthiness on the nose. Flavours of dark red fruit with a savoury mixture of cherries, plums and cinnnamon create an extended palate feel. The French oak contribution will allow for an extended maturation.

Food Matches

Pinot Noir always expresses itself best with good food. Avoid any sweetness or too much spice. Enjoy with Emmental cheese, salmon, duck or beef.
