Mother Rock Liquid Skin
Mother Rock is a collaboration between winemaker Johan Meyer and Indigo founder Ben Henshaw. Johan, a rising star of the new South African wine scene, developed strong relationships with some of the best grapegrowers across the Cape over the years, and as a result he has gained access to some of the region’s best fruit. Recently, they’ve started working on new 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. 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.
This vineyard has been farmed organically with minimal intervention since 2009. Vines are mostly dry farmed bush vines. All grapes were handpicked in the early morning during cooler weather, placed into lug boxes (smaller quantities mean reduced compaction and damage to the fruit) and then moved to cellar.
100% of the grapes are whole bunch fermented on the skins for 2 weeks, after which they undergo post-fermentative maceration for another 7 weeks on skins and stems. Ageing takes place in old 500-litre French oak barrels for 10 months on the gross lees, after which it is bottled without fining or filtering.
A deep golden orange color, with complex aromas of exotic fruits, apricot, honey and quince. The palate has structure but also plenty of freshness and minerality, making it serious but also incredibly drinkable.
