Mother Rock is a collaboration between winemaker Johan Meyer and Indigo founder Ben Henshaw. Johan, a star of the new South African wine scene, developed strong relationships with some of the best grape growers across the Cape over the years, and as a result he has gained access to some of the region’s best fruit. They work on wines under the ‘Mother Rock' label, focusing on discovering exceptional parcels of well-farmed vines grown on a variety of soil types and vinified as simply as possible. Johan has bought his own farm, in the north Swartland, and is establishing vineyards there which in time he will use in his wines. These are terroir-focused wines made to offer drinkability and enjoyment, and it doesn’t hurt that the labels are beautiful. Ultimately, Mother Rock is about showcasing the best and purest expression of South Africa’s diverse terroir. 

The Chenin for this wine is from a single vineyard on the outskirts of Malmesbury, planted with dry farmed bush vines. Deep golden orange colour, complex aromas of exotic fruits, apricot, honey, and plenty of freshness and minerality on the palate. This is serious and structured, but also incredibly drinkable.
