La Motte’s Syrah wines are acclaimed for their elegance. Perhaps the wines find their classic style in the origin of the grapes - a natural fruitiness from the Franschhoek Valley and the cool climate complexities from the Cape South Coast. Perhaps it is winemaking inspiration from France, where La Motte’s vinicultural heritage began or perhaps it is because the estate’s celebrated way of combining wine and food is all about subtlety and balance. The calm and caress of blue come to mind when enjoying a glass of La Motte Syrah and that is what inspired our short film: The Colours of La Motte Syrah. Watch now.

Syrah and Venison
There’s something about Syrah that works beautifully with venison. Or perhaps it is the other way round. But Syrah understands the flavours that also work well with venison. Earthy notes, a subtle smokiness, fragrant herbs and spices and the charm of fruity sweetness.
Find the beauty of such a combination in Chef Eric’s recipe for Fire-roasted venison leg, braised kale and honey roasted parsnips.
