La Motte Pierneef Syrah-Viognier 2018

Product information "La Motte Pierneef Syrah-Viognier 2018"
The La Motte Pierneef Syrah Viognier impresses with its intense aroma of red fruits, mulberries, floral tones, anise and leather. Fine tannins caress the palate and are underpinned by spicy green pepper before the blend of Syrah (98%) and Viognier (2%) ends with a long-lasting finish. Thanks to its rich and fruity character, the red wine, which was matured in oak for fourteen months, is a wonderful food companion. The good structure and spicy notes of the Syrah and the floral nuances of the Viognier ensure that the La Motte Pierneef Syrah Viognier goes perfectly with dark meat and game, duck or an aromatic curry. But the red wine is also a treat on its own. By the way, the label features art works by the South African landscape painter Jakob Hendrik Pierneef.

La Motte wine stands for top quality

The La Motte wine estate is situated in the middle of the beautiful Cape Winelands, not far from the town of Franschhoek. After an extensive renovation in 2010, La Motte has become one of the main destinations for international wine tourists in South Africa. La Motte Wine Estate extends its commitment to premium wine to neighbouring culinary and cultural areas. In the estate's own restaurant, guests can enjoy traditional dishes with a modern twist and, of course, sample a La Motte wine or two from South Africa. A museum also showcases the estate's turbulent history, while regular musical events are part of La Motte's proverbial good tone and make La Motte more than just a winery.

The wines of La Motte

At the La Motte winery, traditional winemaking is combined with state-of-the-art cellar technology to produce premium wines of the highest class, as the wine must meet strict quality criteria. The success of the wines is confirmed by the regular international awards for the La Motte wine produced year after year. Both the red and white wines reflect the winemakers' accumulated experience, but also their passion for wine from South Africa. On the 75 hectares of vineyards, mainly the grape varieties Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc are cultivated. Among the unique red wines, the La Motte Pierneef Syrah-Viognier, which was dedicated to the South African landscape painter Jacob Hendrik Pierneef, whose artwork also adorns the label of the red wine, stands out in particular. In addition, the La Motte winery also produces a famous blend in the style of a Rhône wine composed of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre, which bears the glamorous name "Hanneli R". But also the Cabernet Sauvignon and the Franschhoek Syrah are internationally recognised wines with great fruit aromas and a pleasant tannin structure. The fruity, uncomplicated white wines from La Motte, such as the Pierneef Sauvignon Blanc, Franschhoek Chardonnay or Sauvignon Blanc, round off the portfolio of La Motte perfectly and also convince as versatile food companions with a long-lasting taste.

La Motte with sustainable viticulture

The La Motte wine estate is committed to issues of nature conservation and gentle viticulture. For example, the winemakers preserve South Africa's natural flora, especially fynbos. La Motte is also a WWF Conservation Champion and a member of the Biodiversity and Wine Initiative, and therefore avoids the use of herbicides and pest control as far as possible. The grapes for the ripening process come from their own vineyards and from partner wineries in the surrounding area. This allows the winemakers to ensure consistently high quality while experimenting with the different terroirs. Every sip of the unique La Motte wines made from grapes from the vineyards located 300 to 400 metres above sea level makes the heart of every wine lover beat faster!
