The grapes of the La Motte Cabernet Sauvignon originates from vineyards in the three different areas at Stellenbosch, Franschhoek and Bot River. This combination makes for the great complexity of the red wine that convinces with its notes of red berries and a hint of mint as well as its good tannin structure. A small part of Cinsault (8%) is responsible for a lower Alcohol content and gives the La Motte Cabernet Sauvignon that matured in French oak for 16 months even more fruit and elegance. Due to its prominent minerality and its flavorful intensity, this red wine is an especially great companion for game dishes such as venison. This blend is always a good choice for red meat or roast beef, too. Also try it with mature cheese!

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.
