Bouchard Finlayson Auction Reserve Pinot Noir 2012

Vintage 2012 was unusual in that both quality and quantity presented above average offerings. In fact, the Pinot Noir fruit was outstanding. Our high density plantings also contributed towards enhancing flavour profile and creating greater depth of tannin and colour. This is the first Hemel-en-Aarde Valley Pinot Noir presented under the CWG label. Tasting Notes: The core of plush vibrant fruit and tannins encompass spicy, well centred, dark forest-berry flavours. A 100% contribution of best new French oak further adds to complexity and offers confirmed aging potential.
