“A nuanced crimson red that presents a balance between warm and cool, assertive, but not aggressive, a carmine red that does not boldly dominate but instead takes a ‘fist in a velvet glove’ approach”.¹ This is but one of the various descriptions of Viva Magenta 18-1750, Pantone’s Colour of the Year for 2023, that also beautifully applies to La Motte’s recently released 2020 Millennium.
Just in time for the festive season, La Motte is releasing the 2020 vintage of its acclaimed Chardonnay - one of the most versatile white wines for summer celebrations and special occasions.
La Motte is introducing a new addition to its well-known portfolio of wines – a French-style rosé called Vin de Joie. The 2021 La Motte Vin de Joie Rosé is an elegant choice that promises to bring joy: whether it is a social joy - having a glass of wine with friends as part of a lazy lunch – or a simple joy – a quiet hour of reading or watching the sun sets…
La Motte is delighted to announce its appointment by the Great Wine Capitals of the World as the South African Winner in three of the 2021 Best of Wine Tourism categories: Wine Tourism Service, Arts and Culture as well as Sustainable Wine Tourism Practices.
“In a year that has been globally challenging for tourism and especially testing for the South African wine industry, it is important to stay true to your values and quality standards”, says La Motte CEO Hein Koegelenberg. “Innovation and cooperation are essential and we are delighted that La Motte’s efforts have been recognised. We hope to serve as inspiration for the sustainability of wine tourism in South Africa.”
