Boschendal Lanoy 1997

The Lanoy shows excellent concentration of colour and structure in a well-integrated wine that will reward ageing. The good depth of fruit flavours, with multi-layered peppery spice dominating the brambleberry fruit, makes this an ideal choice for rare roast fillet, roast lamb, casseroles and hard cheeses.
