La Motte

The imminent Dr Anton Rupert was a successful industrialist and prominent proponent of South African culture, classical music, and the arts. He acquired La Motte in 1970 and had it meticulously restored it to its original condition. The estate remains in the family, who proudly continue and build on his legacy. It is currently owned by his daughter, Hanneli Rupert- Koegelenberg, and run by her husband, Hein Koegelenberg. It is governed with a strong focus on historical and cultural preservation.

La Motte Pierneef Syrah Viognier
This wine is a tribute to South African artist Jacob Hendrik Pierneef (1886 – 1957), famous for his mastership in portraying the unadorned beauty of the South African landscape and its architecture. Inspiration for this label design was gained from a limited edition of 128 Pierneef linocut prints and the wine is made in great Côte Rôtie style in the northern Rhône area. It is a unique blend of white and red wine. The flamboyant flavour of the Viognier is a lively complement to the spiciness of the Syrah.

A Bordeaux-styled blend first created in the late 1990s to showcase the potential and vision for the quality of red blends from the Cape. La Motte Millennium has long since came of age and continues to impress in class and style with raspberry and mulberry fruit, cinnamon spice and a hint of mint as well as earthiness delivering a complex wine with a smooth entry and firm mid-palate finishing with lingering fruit and discreet minerality.

La Motte Chardonnay
Grapes from one specific site in the Franschhoek area are combined with a secret French barrel selection, to produce the classic flavours that give this style its wide appeal. The wine is light in texture, but has all the charm of a world-class example of this variety, as it has proved to be.

La Motte Sauvignon Blanc
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.
