In a bright straw yellow the La Motte Sauvignon Blanc shimmers in the glass and makes you want more. The bouquet unfolds intense gooseberry aromas, surrounded by tropical notes and lemons. Although the acidity of the white wine in this vintage is slightly higher than in previous years, the La Motte Sauvignon Blanc is a delight on the palate with its beautiful balance and silky mouth feel, before it leaves with a fresh and long-lasting finish. Enjoy this white wine as an aperitif or serve it with starters. Do not miss the combination with seafood and pasta. Goat cheese or spicy dishes, for example from the Asian cuisine, are also highly recommended in combination with the La Motte Sauvignon Blanc.

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.
