La Motte Shiraz Viognier 2013, South Africa
Relax into this wine and wallow for a bit. It’s seductive and lush and envelops you. It’s arguably the best Cote Rotie-a-like Shiraz-Viognier blend in South Africa. But its first duty is to be delicious and charm you. Perfume from the Viognier, blackcurrant and spice from the Shiraz and a lingering, violet note. Needs firm meats and rich flavours, ideally with a bit of hearty protein at their core.
