The La Motte Pierneef Sauvignon Blanc displays with its citrus fruit aromas as well as the green notes of bell pepper and gooseberry nuances that are characteristic for this grape variety. On the palate, the fresh white wine which was refined with a small part of Sémillon (8%), is very fruity at first and then it develops an exceptionally elegance before it ends with a fresh minerality.

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.
