La Motte Millennium 2016
Merlot (56%), Cabernet Franc (28%), Petit Verdot (10%) and Malbec (6%) from Walker Bay, Franschhoek and Stellenbosch. The different components were matured separately for 12 months in old 225-litre French oak barrels. Raspberry (Merlot), a slight herbaceousness (Cabernet Franc) and toffee (oak) combine in a harmonious way. Malbec and Petit Verdot provide colour and spice. Very perfumed and aromatic with the earthiness of beetroot and leafy undergrowth. Juicy concentrated blueberry fruit on palate with fresh acidity and toffee sweetness. Spicy cinnamon finish.
