La Motte
This wine is a blend of 90% Syrah and 10% Viognier. The Shiraz component is from Walker Bay (65%) and Elim (35%) while the Viognier (10%) originates from Franschhoek.
This vintage reflects rose geranium perfume on the nose, with mulberry fruit.
Soft and gentle on the palate, medium in body and lots of finesse. A perfect expression of South African cool climate Syrah.

Composition of the land The Elim vineyards grow in duplex soils with a high content of ferrocrete (coffee stone), the Walker Bay vineyards in shallow shale and the Franschhoek vineyards (Viognier) in deep sandy decomposed sandstone and granite.
Vinification Grapes from the different Syrah vineyards were harvested at different times, but always with some Viognier. The grapes were hand-sorted and then fermented without stems. Regular pump overs were done during fermentation at about 25 degrees Celsius.
Aging After about 25 days’ maceration the free run and press wine were placed together in 300-litre barrels and matured for 14 months. 70% of the barrels were new. Blending took place and the wine went back to barrels for another 4 months before bottling.
