The nose of this wine tells the story of how the wine was made. Raspberry (Merlot), a slight herbaciousnous (Cabernet Franc) and English toffee (oak) combine in a harmonious way. Malbec and Petit Verdot provide colour and spice. Very perfumy and aromatic with beetroot earthiness and leafy undergrowth. Juicy concentrated blueberry fruit on palate with fresh acidity and toffee sweetness. Spicy cinnamon finish.

Each vineyard has its own macro climate and vineyards grow in a wide variety of soil types. Several clones are represented. All the vineyards are trellised according to the Perold system and managed to maintain a perfect balance between leaf coverage and yield. Thanks to the different terroirs, each area produces its own distinctive grapes, so grapes from each area make a unique contribution to flavour and structure.

The different components were matured separately for 12 months in old 300-litre French oak barrels. Then blending and filtration followed. In September 2019 the wine was bottled (390 000 x 750 ml) to be released as 2018 La Motte Millennium.

Food Pairing

This South African interpretation of the famous Bordeaux-style red blend is excellent at countering fat – creamy, buttery or otherwise fat-laden dishes such as duck-liver are excellent partners.

Charcuterie

Poultry

Game Birds

Soft Cheese
