SWARTLAND, SOUTH AFRICA
Johan, a rising star of the new South African wine scene, has developed strong relationships with some of the best grape growers across the Cape over the years. As a result, he has gained access to some of the region’s best fruit and is producing some of the best South Africa can offer. Johan focuses on discovering exceptional parcels of sustainably-farmed (organic and biodynamic in practice) vines grown on a variety of soil types. He vinifies as simply as possible, only adding minimal amounts of sulfur to certain wines at bottling for preservation and stability.
Mother Rock’s wines are terroir-focused, offering drinkability and enjoyment, and it doesn’t hurt that the labels are beautiful and depictive of the terroir either.
Ultimately, Mother Rock is about showcasing the best and purest expression of South Africa’s diverse terroir.
