Inspired by La Motte's owner, Hanneli Rupert, this wine guides La Motte in its noble pursuit of excellence and its love of the South African winelands. A Shiraz-based blend produced from hand-harvested grapes, selected exclusively when a vintage yields exceptional quality. Matured in new wood for thirty months. Released at least four years after harvesting. A truly inspired wine.
The combination of a good vintage and 48 months of wood maturation has produced a wine with exceptional depth, complexity and personality. The intensely distinctive nose shows rose petal perfume with blackberry and mulberry fruit, as well as cinnamon and black pepper spice. On the palate there are powdery tannins, surrounded by a fleshy fullness and lingering mineral freshness. Enjoyed at its best between eight and twelve years after vintage.
