2008 Galpin Peak Pinot Noir, Bouchard Finlayson. Walker Bay, South Africa.
£20. B+

First South African Pinot I've had. Plenty of red fruits currants, slight sulphury nose; a bit of burnt and hotness showing, some spice too. Palate is crunchy, nice fat acidity; fruit is lush, sweet and ripe, mostly currants, cherries and raspberries. Quite big in style, but still balanced; but rather weird finish. Bit pricy for what it is.
