Introducing Suzanne, a sophisticated white blend made in tribute to Suzanne de Lanoy, wife of Boschendal’s Huguenot founder Nicolas de Lanoy, and the farm’s original matriarch. By all acounts she was a formidable, dynamic woman, and a pillar of strength for her family and the community. The vision for this wine was to live up to its namesake, elegant yet assertive with many layers and timeless appeal.
Tasting notes and serving suggestion:
A luminous pale straw colour with a green tint makes this lightly oaked blend inviting at first glance. On the nose there are appetising notes of white nectarine, key lime and green fig preserve with elegant oak nuances in the background. Framing the fruit is a hint of stony minerality that adds interest on the mouthfeel. This is a wine that drinks beautifully now but has the complexity to mature for another 5-10 years. A versatile partner for food, enjoy it chilled with shellfish, roast chicken, veal and vegetable dishes.
