A confident wine with a firm and polished profile of flavours without being overstated. It is classically Old World with good aging potential. Peppery spice with blackberry and cherry notes end in a harmonious and long, earthy finish. A winner of many prestigiuos awards, including 5 stars on the Platter's wine guide.
One of the most significant features of 2013 was the unusually long winter of 2012 with the added challenge of a very wet October month. While this may sound adverse, it was in fact a very ‘appropriate’ scenario because worldwide quality wine production is synonymous with marginal but cool climate conditions. This vintage represents the 21st edition of Galpin Peak Pinot Noir from Bouchard Finlayson.
