2020 Mother Rock, White Blend | Swartland, South Africa

Varietal(s): 41% Chenin Blanc, 25% Viognier, 19% Grenache Blanc, 15% Semillon

Vineyard Management: Practicing Organic, Dry-Farmed 

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

Vegan: Yes

Typicity: Atypical for Chenin Blanc, as this bottling exhibits more tart flavors from the fermentation process. The blend of other white grapes also lend more lift and acid than is typical for Chenin Blanc. 

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.
