The La Motte Pierneef Syrah Viognier is a full-bodied blend of Syrah (95%) and Viognier (5%) and a successful example of a wine from the cooler growing areas of the Cape Winelands. In the bouquet beautiful notes of mulberry, pepper and liquorice unfold. On the palate, the blend, which has matured in oak for a total of 18 months, convinces with its accessible and silky soft character, before it leaves with a refined and fresh finish. Thanks to its fruity aromas, La Motte Pierneef Syrah Viognier is a versatile food companion. The structure and spicy components of Syrah on the one hand and the floral nuances of Viognier on the other make it possible to combine this blend with beef and game as well as with an aromatic curry or duck. But La Motte Pierneef Syrah Viognier is also a culinary delight on its own.

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.
