La Motte Sauvignon Blanc 2019
Western Cape - Light straw in colour. Lots of gooseberry on the nose, together with lemon and tropical notes. Very polished and silky on the palate. Higher acidity than in other years, but well balanced by the almost medium-bodied weight. The finish is juicy, light and lingering with a fresh finish.
Franschhoek - The nose of this wine tells the story of how it was made. Raspberry (Merlot), a slight herbaciousness (Cabernet Franc) and English toffee (oak) combine in a harmonious way. Malbec and Petit Verdot provide colour and spice. Very perfumy 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.
