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.

La Motte Millennium
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.
