I am very pleased to announce that the 2008 La Motte Méthode Cap Classique has won the sparkling wine category in the 2011 Novare SA Terroir Wine Awards.
Only wines certified as a single vineyard wine, an estate produced wine or from a specific ward can participate in the competition which was started six years ago.
“Since this competition was started six years ago, we have received record entries year after year, which truly shows that there will always be a place to praise those wines that are created with grapes from a specific wine growing area,” said says Marius Labuschagne who founded the awards.
“The results each year also shows the diversity of South Africa’s many wine terroirs and the wide variety of quality that is grown and vinified in many different areas. Few countries can compete with us when it comes to producing high quality wines in all styles from all cultivars.”
