Force Celeste Rose, Mother Rock, Swartland
Unfiltered and full of flavour, with some fine lees particles lending hints of baking spices. Funky and tart, with notes of baked strawberries and peppery freesias. Slowly whole-bunch pressed and vinified without any additives, for texture and a dry finish. The result is fresh and pure, food-friendly, and drinkable.
Mother Rock is a collaboration between winemaker Johan Meyer and Indigo founder Ben Henshaw. 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. 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 Rosé and a Red Blend, both produced with the same principles as the original.
