Force Majeure White 2015, Mother Rock Wines, Swartland, S Africa

Sold out.

Mother Rock makes wines of purity – pure varietal expression, pure expression of terroir and pure quality; we fell in love with them instantly. Like everything of real quality these wines are painstakingly hand crafted and made in tiny quantities so they are not easy to come by. Their Chenin is made from 35 year old vines sourced from a single block and the fruit is very much left to do the talking with a considered non-interventionist approach in the cellar. As they say, great wine is made in the vineyard not in the cellar! Flavours of green fruit such as pear and apple jump out of the glass to greet your palate with touches of spice and hints of nuttiness adding complexity and depth.
