La Motte Chardonnay acknowledged for its Franschhoek finesse


We are delighted to celebrate the performance of our 2016 La Motte Chardonnay in the seventh annual Winemag.co.za Prescient Chardonnay Report.

“As in previous years, the wines which the panel tended to reward were those showing the clearest fruit definition. Local Chardonnay seems to do best when made in a more elegant style – grapes picked ripe but not over-ripe and winemaking technique applied with restraint”, says the Report.

With a rating of 92, the elegance and finesse of the 2016 La Motte Chardonnay definitely met the judges’ criteria.  At the same time this score also qualifies the wine for the status of Appellation Grand Prestige, a recognition of “Franschhoek wines, based on the principles of provenance, for wine styles that typify quality wine production in the valley.”
