Syrah from Franschhoek contains a natural fruitiness that includes red berries and mulberry. The Durif provides colour, plum fruit and texture. One of the vineyards blocks well exposed to shade, yields black pepper spice, clearly noticeable on the palate. Wood flavours are well integrated and the palate has a creamy texture.

Cultivar: 100% Syrah/Shiraz

Alcohol 13.69% vol

Residual sugar 2.3 g/l

Total acid 5.6 g/l

pH 3.44

The Syrah vineyards at La Motte Wine Estate are between 10 and 30 years old and are spread over different blocks with varying soil profiles. The vineyard blocks are situated between 200 and 300 metres above sea level. The soil is of a sandstone and granite origin and varies from a heavier texture along the slopes to a sandy, well-drained texture where the landscape is flatter. All the vineyards are trellised. Different clones and microclimates on the estate lend varying characteristics to the wine.

The wine was matured in 300-litre French oak barrels for 14 months, 30% of which were new.

Food Pairing

The full-bodied character of this wine harmonizes perfectly with rich, flavourful dishes, grilled foods (including grilled vegetables), game dishes (particularly those incorporating stewed fruit and sweet aromatic spice components), peppercorn crusted steaks and barbecued meat in a sticky, sweet sauce. The wine’s abundant fruit also latches onto the sweetness in jellies, chutneys and berry sauces.
