Where: Swartland, South Africa

Body: Light/Medium
Category: Red Wine

A lifted, light red with ripe tannins, depth, and drinkability from whole bunch fermentation. As always, there is a gentle rusticity that peeks through layers of red fruits. Very pure and bright this vintage.


The ‘Mother Rock’ series of wines is all about showcasing the nuance and greatness of the Swartland through a very minimalist touch of Johan Meyer, AKA ‘Stompie.’ Cinsault is the grape that in many ways embodies the ‘new’ Swartland, one that is highlighted in its best light with a gentle touch, picking early to preserve acidity and not covering up the elegance of the grape with oak. The 2022 vintage saw a shift from a Malmesbury site to one on the Paardeberg, made up entirely of decomposed granite soils which add a distinguished freshness and vibrancy to the wine.

The grapes are handpicked across two weeks and were wild yeast fermented entirely whole-cluster in concrete tanks with just gentle hand plunging for four weeks and an additional two weeks on skins/stems post-fermentation.  The wine remained in concrete for twelve months of aging. After that point, the wine was blended and bottled without fining or filtration and just a very small addition of sulfur.
