Boschendal Lanoy Cab/Sauv Merlot shows a classical nose, with a perfect harmony between the darker more opulent fruit from the Cabernet and the fresh red display from the Merlot. The palate is well-balanced and filled with a round tannin. Fruit flavours on show range from cassis and mulberry to fresh red cherries, with a good complexity originating in the secondary flavours that include brown wood spice and hints of toastiness.
Since 1685, agriculture and a simple farm lifestyle have been at the heart of Boschendal.
