4 ½ Stars 2020 Platter’s South African Wine Guide

Showing influence of stellar vintage, 17 (92 pts) raises the bar on 16 in rich, rounded concentration. Darkly seductive, it’s harmonious, plush & long. Oak (30% new) well integrated. Dab durif for colour.

Winemaker Notes

La Motte Syrah  is a true expression of its Franschhoek terroir where micro-climates from the mountain slopes and valley floors add complexity to the wine’s elegant character. Syrah wine from Franschhoek contains a natural fruitiness that includes red berries and mulberry, while a small percentage Durif provides colour, plum fruit and texture.

The full-bodied character of this red wine harmonises 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 red wine’s abundant fruit also latches onto the sweetness in jellies, chutneys and berry sauces.
