Semi-orange in colour due to mild skin contact. Unfined and unfiltered. Zesty style of Chenin. The bouquet shows a fine dichotomy of white stones and herbal edge with quenching acidity and intense flowing energy. The palate brings minerality which is unique and hard to pin down as it fights between rocky intensity and herbal nuances. Fresh, vibrant and textural with citrus fruit character on the finish.

Mother Rock wines showcase the best and purest expression of the Swartland's diverse terroir. Young winemaker Johan Meyer has developed strong relationships with some of the best grape growers across the Swartland and has gained access to some of the region’s best fruit. Under the Mother Rock label, he bottles exceptional parcels of well-farmed vines grown on a variety of soil types and vinified as simply as possible. Johan himself says it best, 'I believe the word terroir should be used in honest terms. Letting the area and grape speak for themselves in the bottle is our goal – naturally fermented grape juice, that’s all!'.
