This wonderful single-vineyard Semillon, hails from a parcel on the Paardeberg Mountain in South Africa's Swartland region. Planted in 1997, these bush vines thrive in the dry heat and lend themselves well to this vibrant, electric style. Zesty, zippy, salty and saline, this is lightning trapped in a bottle!
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!”.
