This Chenin is all about fruit purity and freshness, giving a modern look to a classic South African varietal. The grapes are sourced from a single vineyard with 32-year-old dry-farmed bush vines in the heart of the Swartland. The winemaking is minimalist, relying on native yeast and forgoing filtration or fining, aiming at letting the fruit shine through. A beautifully made wine that pleases the palate and the hip pocket.
Mother Rock wines showcase the best and purest expression of the Swartland's diverse terroir. Young winemaker Johan Meyer has developed strong relationships with some of the best grape growers across the Swartland and has gained access to some of the region’s best fruit. Under the Mother Rock label, he bottles exceptional parcels of well-farmed vines grown on a variety of soil types and vinified as simply as possible. Johan himself says it best: “I believe the word terroir should be used in honest terms. Letting the area and grape speak for themselves in the bottle is our goal – naturally fermented grape juice, that’s all!”.
