The La Motte Cabernet Sauvignon is a wonderfully complex red wine that owes its complexity to the grapes from three areas of cultivation - Stellenbosch, Franschhoek and Bot River - because each region is skilfully reflected in it. Notes of red berries, a hint of mint, mineral tones and the good tannin structure result in an aromatic red wine, which fits perfectly to every kind of meat dish, because it cuts a good figure with lamb and beef as well as game. The La Motte Cabernet Sauvignon has been refined with a small proportion of Cinsault (5%), which gives the red wine, which has matured for 16 months in French oak, even more elegance and a slightly lower alcohol content.

La Motte from the Rupert Family

In 1970, Dr Anton Ruper, an art lover and international businessman with a passion for nature conservation, purchased the Franschhoek wine farm, La Motte. 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.
