Bordeaux Style Blend
A dusty, earthy nose with raspberry and mulberry fruit, cinnamon spice and a hint of mint, promising a complex wine. The first touch on the palate is velvety and juicy. The mid-palate is firm, but medium-bodied and the finish mineral-dry and lingering.
Gourmets will highly enjoy the La Motte Millennium in interplay with red meat and especially game. The combination with mature cheese is also recommended.
Grapes for the wine consist of Merlot (56%), Cabernet Franc (28%), Petit Verdot (10%) and Malbec (6%).
The La Motte Millennium is a cuvee of the grape varieties Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Sauvignon, in which the first constitutes the largest part. This variety stands for soft red wines with fruity aromas and herbs. Furthermore, Malbec and Petit Verdot deliver spicy berry aromas as well as strong tannins. A part Cabernet Sauvignon completes the whole to an expressive, balanced red wine.
The winery La Motte can look back on a long tradition: in 1752, the first vines have been planted there. But only when the estate came into possession of the family Rupert it became one of the most important internationally renowned wine producers. Today, the winery presents wines of a top class in the region around Franschhoek and Paarl, which is impressively confirmed by the La Motte Millennium
