Mother Rock Brutal! Red
Country: South Africa
Grapes: Cinsault, Carignan
A red bottled under the Brutal label from Johan Meyer of Mother Rock wines in Swartland. Inaugurated by the epomymous Barcelona natural wine bar and embraced by winemakers across the world, Brutal is a vehicle for winemakers to bottle their more experimental cuvées.
Johan has taken this to heart, pressing Cinsault juice onto the dried skins of Carignan grapes before ageing on lees for 11 months in old French oak barrels. The result is a delight, super juicy and savoury with redcurrant, cranberry and chalky mineral notes.
