Notes

Mother Rock is a collaboration between winemaker Johan “Stompie” Meyer and Ben Henshaw of London wine merchant Indigo. Their everyday drinking Force Majeure wines have been around for a while now but recently saw the maiden release of six first-label wines, all grapes sourced from exceptional parcels in the Swartland and made as naturally as possible but with 'a focus on clarity and cleanliness.

Tasting notes:
'Red and black fruit overlain with scrub, pepper and spice plus hints of olive and liquorice. The palate has pure fruit, zingy acidity and fine tannins. Well balanced and rather charming.' – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za, 92/100
