The La Motte Franschhoek Syrah convinces with its beautiful fruit aromas, which are typical for a Syrah from Franschhoek. Especially, notes of red berries and mulberries are very present. Since the red wine was refined with a small amount of Petite Sirah (15%), plum nuances are added. On the palate, the La Motte Franschhoek Syrah delights with aromas of black pepper and well-integrated oak notes. The creamy texture adds the finishing touch to this full-bodied red wine. Enjoy a rich wine like the La Motte Franschhoek Syrah best with aromatic dishes, game and grilled meats with a fruity sauce harmonise particularly well with this 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.
