Swartland, South Africa


Wild Red


This vineyard has been farmed organically. All grapes were handpicked in three phases, and placed into lug boxes (smaller quantities mean reduced compaction and damage to the fruit) and then moved to cellar.

'Very fine, perfumed and expressive with a slightly herby nose or red cherries with tea leaf detail. Vibrant, juicy, pure red, cherry fruit palate is so expressive. Complex, pure and beautiful.'
96/100, Jamie Goode

JH Meyer Signature Wines and Mother Rock


100% of the grapes are whole bunch fermented, and the wine spends 8 weeks on the skins. ageing takes place in old 500-litre French oak barrels for 10 months, after which it is bottled without filtering.

JH Meyer Signature Wines and Mother Rock


A small boutique wine grower that produces hand crafted natural wines from small plots of vineyards in the south coast region of South Africa.

Johan, a rising 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. The company was established in 2011, with 2012 seeing the first bottling from these artistic wines. Driven by nature and “terroir” the wines show unique flavours and characteristics of the land it was grown on. Noticing a gap in the UK market for artisanal, well-made South African Chenin at an accessible price, they decided to use this fruit to create the first Force Majeure. The success of this wine has given way to two new additions to the Force Majeure line: a Cinsault Rosé and a Red Blend made up of Syrah, Pinotage, Grenache, Cinsault, Carignan and Mourvedre, both produced with the same principles as the original.

Recently, they’ve also started working on new wines under the ‘Mother Rock’ label (a collaboration between Johan and Indigo founder Ben Henshaw), 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.
