The tasting will be hosted by winemaker Chris Albrecht, who celebrated his 7th harvest since he first started at Bouchard Finlayson in 2011. Nine vintages of the unique red blend, Hannibal will be tasted alongside a few other Italian varietal examples, and sampled alongside delectable canapés from Open Wine.
Bouchard Finlayson Vineyard and Winery is a small cellar dedicated to the quality production of Pinot noir, Chardonnay and Sauvignon blanc. Established in 1989 in the temperate Hemel-en-Aarde Valley, adjacent to the coastal town of Hermanus, it is situated on 125 hectares (312 acres) of Walker Bay’s prime viticultural land. Ever since releasing their first vintages, the name Bouchard Finlayson has been internationally synonymous with excellence. Today, owned by the Red Carnation Hotels’ Tollman family and under the leadership of Victoria Tollman, founder Peter Finlayson and winemaker Chris Albrecht, 25 hectares (62 acres) of the estate are currently under vine with 50% devoted to the varietal for which Peter is most acclaimed – Pinot noir.
