La Motte is delighted to have the current vintages 2014 La Motte Syrah and 2016 Pierneef Sauvignon Blanc as well as the soon to be released 2015 Pierneef Syrah Viognier listed under South Africa’s top 100 wines by the National Wine Challenge.
“To have three wines under the Top 100 South African wines in the National Wine Challenge, not only makes us very proud, it also acknowledges our dedicated and continuous efforts to offer exceptional quality across our varietal and brand spectrum”, says La Motte CEO, Hein Koegelenberg.
2014 La Motte Syrah
Years of experience in producing this variety have enabled La Motte to combine the grapes of a number of cool terroirs to capture juicy berry-fruit, sweet liquorice, violet flowers and pepper spice. Traditionally a very bold variety, this rewarding Syrah has been refined into a medium-bodied, highly accessible wine. Buy here.
2016 Pierneef Sauvignon Blanc
La Motte’s recently released 2016 Pierneef Sauvignon Blanc reaffirms its status as a complex and intriguing style of Sauvignon Blanc – ideal for both the dinner table and maturation cellar for those who prefer their whites a bit more matured. Buy here.
2015 Pierneef Syrah Viognier
This wine was inspired by the great Côte Rôtie style in the northern Rhône area. It is a unique blend of white and red wine. The flamboyant flavour of the Viognier is a lively complement to the spiciness of the Syrah. Intended for the connoisseur who appreciates the success of a highly rewarding wine. Buy 2014 vintage here.
