The La Motte Franschhoek Chardonnay shimmers in a beautiful straw yellow in the glass and already unfolds its multi-layered character in the bouquet. Fruity aromas of nectarines and citrus fruits are surrounded by the wonderful scent of lemon blossom. The white wine owes its hints of yeast and cashew nuts to its eleven-month ageing in French oak. Nevertheless, the La Motte Franschhoek Chardonnay is wonderfully fresh and lively on the palate and scores with its rich fruit notes. Therefore, you should definitely enjoy this white wine on its own. If you want to serve it with food, dishes with seafood or creamy cheese are particularly recommended.

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.
