Bouchard Finlayson is a top class, internationally-renowned estate situated in Walker Bay, mid-way between Cape Point and Cape Agulhas (the most southerly tip of Africa). The climate is largely influenced by the nearby cold Atlantic Ocean rendering it one of the coolest wine-growing areas in the Cape. The Hemel-en-Aarde valley, home to Bouchard Finlayson, is surrounded and sheltered by a mountain barrier, formed by Galpin Peak (810m) and the Tower of Babel (1,200m), which traps the cloud cover and moisture brought in from the sea by the prevailing wind. This blend (42% Sangiovese, 17% Nebbiolo, 15% Pinot Noir, 12% Shiraz, 7% Mourvèdre and 7% Barbera) has supple dried cherry, blackberry and savoury meat underpinned by a tobacco and green olive core.
