Force Celeste Cinsault Rose 2021 - Mother Rock
A vibrant and funky dry 100% South African Cinsault rosé from Mother Rock’s Force Celeste line, full of red berries, cidery acidity and refreshing minerality. The Cinsault for this one comes from a single organic Swartland vineyard, and is whole-bunch pressed without crushing then fermented in French oak, finishing maturation on gross lees before being bottled without filtration, making for a delightfully cloudy bottle. This one is a true natty rosé, different from fan-favourite Provence bottles, but equally great for summer sipping.
Mother Rock is a collaboration between South African winemaker Johan Meyer and Ben Henshaw, founder of importer and distributor Indigo Wines. For this new project focused on providing artisanal yet accessible South African wines, Meyer has sourced quality grapes from some of the best growers around Swartland for a diverse taste of the Cape.
Mother Rock's avant-garde output mostly showcases Chenin and Cinsault blends from old vine farms, simply vinified for acidic bottles with a fresh herbaceousness that speaks for the region and its terrain. Their white has become a quick hit, and their collab with cult Barcelona wine bar Brutal has provided a way for Meyer to show a more experimental cuvee.
