La Motte Millennium is a great red wine blend, which reveals its incomparable character already in the bouquet. The Merlot grape (44%) gives it its fruity raspberry aromas, while Cabernet Franc (37%) is responsible for the undertones of herbs. A beautiful toffee note, which the wine owes to its twelve-month maturation in French oak, harmoniously rounds off the first impression. The small proportion of Malbec (10%) and Petit Verdot (9%) give La Motte Millennium a spicy component. On the palate, the red wine impresses with its intensity and complexity. Earthy notes, concentrated blueberry aromas and a fresh acidity culminate in a spicy finish with hints of cinnamon. Serve the red wine best in combination with noble, matured cheese. The blend is also always a good choice with dishes with red meat or game. But you should also enjoy La Motte Millennium pure.

La Motte from the Rupert Family

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.
