Mother Rock White 2015

Winemaker's Notes:

*89pts - Robert Parker* *16pts - Jancis Robinson* *91pts - Decanter, 2016* Mother Rock is about showcasing the very best of South African wine. The wines are the creation of John Mayer, a rising South African wine star, and Ben Henshaw, founder of UK wine importer Indigo Wines. These are terroir-focused wines made to offer drinkability and enjoyment, vinified as simply as possible. This wine is a rare and elegant blend of mostly Chenin Blanc from five different sites in the Swartland region. This wine has a lovely, pure nose of apple, honeycomb, apricot and citrus, and a textured and nicely balanced palate, bursting with juicy tropical fruit. A delicious and unique blend, it is both drinkable and food friendly. Enjoy now or cellar for up to four years. "It has a light grapefruit and beeswax-scented bouquet. The palate has a white peach and yellow plum entry, a keen line of acidity, precise and lightly spiced with plenty of tension on the finish. This is a classy Chenin Blanc-based white blend" - Neal Martin, 2015 "Exciting tension with some lemon cough drop flavours. Lots of texture" - Jancis Robinson, 2015.
