With its succinct aromas of spicy pepper and fruity mulberries, the La Motte Pierneef Syrah Viognier delights the connoisseur from the very first moment. A small percentage of Viognier (5%) gives the blend a floral note, while the well-integrated oak nuances provide a good structure and depth. Silky smooth, the La Motte Pierneef Syrah Viognier caresses the palate before leaving with a refined and fresh finish. The red wine, which has matured for 18 months in oak is also a versatile food companion due to its richness of facets. It goes well with dark meat and game as well as with duck or an aromatic curry.

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.
