About this Item

Galpin Peak Pinot Noir, 2003, 2004, 2005
3 (1 x 3) 1500ml

Bouchard Finlayson was established in 1989 as a collaboration between Paul Bouchard, celebrated Burgundian winemaker, and locally awarded Peter Finlayson. Together they produced world renowned wines, with Peter playing an instrumental role in pioneering the production of Pinot Noir in South Africa. We are a perfect balance of old world ways and new creativity and innovation. In 2017 Peter handed over the winemaking reins to Chris Albrecht. Chris is passionate about expressing the remarkable terroir of the Hemel-en-Aarde.

The flagship Galpin Peak Pinot has won numerous awards and accolades, and continues to reflect a true celebration of Pinot, having played a vital role in creating the international awareness for the potential of the Hemel-en-Aarde Valley.

This lot offers a snapshot of the savoury complexity that these wines gain with time in bottle over a vertical of 3 vintages from magnum bottles.
