Mother Rock ‘White’ 2020

R150.00

The Mother Rock wines are more concentrated than their Force Celeste counterparts. The White is a blend of Chenin Blanc, Viognier, Grenache Blanc and Semillon. With some skin contact (15%) and a small percentage (3%) aged under flor, this wine is extreme(ly delicious).

Christian Eedes: “The nose is expressive if unusual with nutty, waxy overtones as well as citrus and stone fruit, herbs and flowers. The palate is lean, fresh and super-tasty, the finish long and dry. It’s a wine that manages to be simultaneously challenging and invigorating. As ever, it’s sure to be divisive – I, for one, like it.

CE’s rating: 95/100”

From vintage 2020, Johan “Stompie” Meyer has made the wines in his cellar at the new home of Mother Rock and JH Meyer Wines, Platteklip Farm on the Piketberg Mountain in northern Swartland.

These are natural wines, with organic farming a foundation of the project. In the cellar, Stompie keeps things very simple: no additions—often not even sulphur. He reliers on a combination of the quality of the vineyard, the farming, picking early, and his skill in the winery to produce expressive wines of honesty and heart at ridiculous value.

These wines are some of the edgiest and most delicious in South Africa today.

There are vineyards being planted on the new farm that will eventually be used for this label in years to come.
