Bouchard Finlayson Galpin Peak Pinot Noir Tete de Cuvee 2007

This blend of only twelve barrels is opulent and full of red cherry & blackberry fruit with also a hint of plum and underlying vanilla, all combining to provide an orchestra of flavour. Great architecture with excellent structural balance of acidity and fine tannins.

in the vineyard : It is said that Pinot Noir has no individual varietal character of its own but, is rather characterized by the soil on which it grows. Essentially it is the most terroir specific varietal of all.

about the harvest: Vintage 2007 presented a small crop of first class grapes. Rich full wines emerged with excellent early drinking expression.

in the cellar : Our Tête de Cuvée label signifies my creative opportunity to select a handful of the finest barrels in the cellar and blend these to acquire a wine which will portray the best of the vintage. This only happens in years of outstanding overall quality.
