Description

A small-batch, single-vineyard Chenin Blanc from the Paardeberg Mountain to the south of Malmesbury. 10 days skin-contact provides a gentle orange hue that translates on the palate to a juicy Seville orange character, with tropical kumquat and a chalky mouthfeel.

Mother Rock is a collaboration between winemaker Johan Meyer and Indigo founder Ben Henshaw. Johan, a star of the new South African wine scene, has 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. 

Uncertified Organic grapes are fermented whole bunch with daily punch-downs for first 10 days, 2 weeks skin-contact then aged for 8 months on gross lees in 1,600 litre concrete eggs.
