Bouchard Finlayson: tasting new releases

A recent tasting of new releases across the Bouchard Finlayson range showed not only approachable, reasonably-priced wines but also age-worthy, Burgundian-style Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, all with quality and freshness in mind.

A selection of new releases from South African winery Bouchard Finlayson were showcased at a recent tasting at the Milestone Hotel in London, part of the Red Carnation Hotels group.

Master Sommelier and DWWA judge Eric Zwiebel presented the wines, talking guests through the history of the Bouchard Finlayson estate and the tasting profile of each wine.

Vicky Tollman, Director of Red Carnation hotels, was also present at the tasting.

Burgundy: a dedication

Founded by Peter Finlayson in 1989, this ambitious winery set out to make top quality wines in South Africa from the start. Travelling to France, Finlayson met with the Bouchard family, with the idea of bringing a little bit of Burgundy to South Africa.
