2021 Mother Rock 'Holocene', Carignan Blend | Swartland, South Africa

Varietal(s): 50% Carignan, 43% Mouvedre, 7% Cinsault

Vineyard Management: Practicing Organic, Dry-Farmed 

Winemaking: Native yeast fermentation, Unfined/Unfitlered, minimal sulfur additions at bottling

Vegan: Yes

Typicity: Atypical for Rhone style blends as this bottling exhibits more tart flavors from the fermentation process. 

Bio: Johan "Stompie" Meyer was already a name amongst South African winemakers before teaming up with Ben Henshaw of Indigo Wines to create Force Celeste (formerly Force Majure) wines. The Chenin based whites and red blends were an instant success, so they upped the ante creating another label, Mother Rock.

Mother Rock's focus is on exceptional small parcels of vines, grown in rare soils around the Cape. Meyer only uses native yeast and no additions during fermentation. The wines are bottled without fining or filtering and only a small sulfur addition.
