IWSC Silver Best in Class, Platter Awards 4 * (2014 Vintage)
The La Motte Sauvignon Blanc has a greeny straw colour. On the nose, gooseberry is the first impression, followed by pineapple, lime and wild grass. With low alcohol, acid and residual sugar, one would expect a thin wine; with this wine it is not the case, though. The palate is well balanced, well polished and medium-round, with a clean, dry and refreshing finish.Food Pairing
The winery La Motte belongs to the oldest wineries in South Africa and is located in the famous viniculture region Stellenbosch. Years of experience and a successful tradition allow high class wines of an exceptional quality to be produced on the estate year after year.
The La Motte Sauvignon Blanc is a fresh white wine which is best opened right away in order to wholly experience its full character. It can nevertheless be stored in the cellar for a few years.
