Boschendal Pinot Noir/Chardonnay 1997

The beautiful pale copper colour of this complex, full-bodied dry wine derives from its high Pinot Noir content, while the Chardonnay contributes backbone and ageing potential. Hints of strawberry on the palate give way to more powerful spicy fruit flavours and a persistent, lingering aftertaste. An excellent complement to poultry and creambased dishes. Superb with salmon.
