The Special Seven Days of Syrah

La Motte Cellarmaster Edmund Terblanche loves Syrah! He is also the Chairman of Shiraz SA and therefore, at La Motte, we’ve extended Shiraz South Africa’s celebration of Seven Days of Shiraz to a whole month. Join us!


Special Syrah Offer

While enjoying a generous glass of red wine is a wonderful way to keep warm, finding that beautiful bottle at a special price, will make you glow even more! During August, buy any 6 of the 2018 La Motte Syrah or 2018 Pierneef Syrah Viognier from our Tasting Room or and pay 10% less! 

Special Syrah Tasting

Whether as a single cultivar or as a magnificent partner in a blend, Syrah makes for an elegant glass of red. It matures beautifully but is even friendly as a youngster. It is smooth enough to enjoy on its own, the ultimate social wine when you have friends over and the most versatile and flexible wine when it comes to the dinner table. Join us during August to taste the various nuances of Syrah. 

R130 per person to taste the current vintage La Motte Syrah, Pierneef Syrah Viognier and Hanneli R, as well as a Cellarmaster’s Vinoteque choice. 

Contact the La Motte Tasting Room to make a booking or ask for the Syrah Tasting when you arrive. The La Motte Tasting Room is open from Tuesday to Sunday, 09:00 – 17:00. T 0218768820 / E

Special Syrah Recipes

Because we love food and wine, we've collected an array of lovely recipes to pair with our various Syrah wines. They include anything from a bumper burger to peppery meatballs and traditional and some non-traditional pies. There are soups - from pocket-friendly barley to exotic aubergine. And we have stews - from a local favourite tomato stew to the French favourites, Cassoulet and Coq au vin! We capitalised on Syrah's affection for spice in a black-pepper and anise tartar, a red Thai curry, cumin-glazed duck and pork roast with spiced pineapple. There's a charred onion tart and spiced pumpkin pie that work a charm as a side to your braai and a chocolaty-fruit bombe dessert to die for!
