The La Motte Chardonnay shimmers with a greenly straw yellow colour into the glass and pampers the gourmet with a fruity bouquet of nectarine and lemons, underlined by a hint of cashew nuts and light oak notes. On the palate, the medium-bodied white wine is also fruity, especially juicy peach and citrus notes can be detected. The La Motte Chardonnay matured in French oak for eleven months, but still has a beautiful freshness and is wonderfully lively. The white wine is already a pleasure when enjoyed on its own yet it is also a very good choice for fine dishes with seafood, fish, lobster, caviar or carpaccio. It also excites in combination with creamy cheese.

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.
