The La Motte Méthode Cap Classique is a sparkling wine, which is largely made from Chardonnay grapes (70%) and a smaller proportion of Pinot Noir (30%). With an extremely fine moussing, this wine promises a wonderfully fresh and soft pleasure on the palate. The connoisseur can look forward to beautiful aromas of yeast and baked bread. Notes of nuts and pears give the sparkling wine the final touch before it leaves with a long finish. Since only the best grapes have been selected for this blend, the La Motte Méthode Cap Classique is only available in a limited quantity of 3,500 bottles. A varied experience through and through – which the MCC proves by its variability when it comes to food since it can accompany a variety of rich but also light dishes. An excellent accompaniment to many soft cheeses, oysters or even veal.

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.

La Motte regularly receives international awards and recognititon from competitions such as the International Wine Challenge, the Concours Mondial de Bruxelles and the Michelangelo Awards. For many wine lovers, the name La Motte is almost synonomous for exceptional quality. Each wine in the portfolio bears testimant to the estate’s espertise and experience in wine cultivation as well as its passion for South African wine. The wines reflect the diversity of their South African terroir and are presented in an elegant style that makes them exceptional partners to food.

The Pierneef à La Motte

Many South African wineries have their own restaurant, but the elegant Pierneef à La Motte Restaurant also bring a taste of South African heritage cuisine. The name of the restaurant is inspired by South African artist Jacob Hendrik Pierneef who is renowned for his creative portrayal of the beautiful South African landscape. Visitors to the estate can enjoy his artistic inspiration in the restaurants. The ktichen serves a modern interpretation of traditional South African cuisine. Recipes are carefully researched and the restaurant uses seasonal produce and locally sourced ingredients in dishes that are a feast for all the senses.
