The La Motte Franschhoek Syrah inspires with its wonderful fruit aromas, especially mulberries and plums are very present. On the palate there are concise nuances of pepper and harmoniously integrated oak notes. The creamy texture gives La Motte Franschhoek Syrah a wonderful mouth feel. Enjoy the full-bodied red wine best with rich dishes. The combination with grilled or game is particularly good, especially with a fruity sauce that underlines the character of the red wine.

The farm has a rich French Huguenot history with Gabriel du Toit planting the first vines in 1752. Today, the estate belongs to Dr Rupert’s daughter, Hanneli Rupert-Koegelenberg and together with her husband and CEO of the estate, Hein Koegelenberg, they have turned La Motte into an internationally respected wine producer and popular wine tourism destination.
