"Motus" 2016, 75% Mourvèdre, 20% Shiraz, 5% Grenache. Perhaps it's the tightening impact of the 20% Shiraz, which, as I've already described for "Le Secret", seems to be the embodiment of fleshy-savouriness at Treloar, but Motus could not be further from the Mourvèdre stereotype of uncontrolled, animal-infused fruitiness. Instead there is a mahogany perfume and precision, a subtle yet steady seriousness to the aromatics, notes of menthol and eucalyptus, and then a palate that is tight, tannic, and endlessly long. Stunning and original. Drink now to 2035+. 13.4% alcohol. Post-arrival price will be: $37.95. TODAY'S 15% PRE-DEPARTURE OFFER: $33 per bottle in any dozen(or $36 if less than 12 bottles ordered).
