La Motte Millennium

The classic blend of Merlot and Cabernet Franc is prominent in some of the world’s most iconic wines and in the 2020 La Motte Millennium they offer aromatic dark berries and plum with nuances of fruit cake and toffee providing subtle sweetness. The Malbec and Petit Verdot contribute intensity in colour, hints of spice as well as complexity and depth to the blend. Barrel-derived spice and charred oak flavours are well integrated for a mediumbodied wine with soft, but lively tannins and a lingering berry aftertaste
