Mother Rock Force Celeste Chenin Blanc
Country: South Africa
Grapes: Chenin Blanc
Johan Meyer is a leading light in South Africa's fast-growing natural wine scene, and together with like minded growers Testalonga and Intellego, has built a movement from the ground up in Swartland working with the old bush vines that thrive in this arid landscape.
This is an amazing value Chenin Blanc from a single plot of 30-35 year old bush vines grown in decomposed granite. Wet stones, pear and honey aromas up front with a touch of walnut. Gentle spice notes on the palate from ageing in old oak as well as some brisk green apple acidity.
