⭐️86/100⭐️ Mother Rock Brutal !, 2019 📍Swartland, South Africa🇿🇦 🍇 100% Chenin Blanc ⚡️12,5 % Tasted: September 2020 The Brutal wine cooperation (related to the cult Barcelona wine bar, Bar Brutal) is a loose cooperation of natural winemakers. To be “accepted” into the club, the winemaker has to make a “brutal” wine (in one way or another…) - super low intervention (natural) and only one barrel of it. It has to stand out as a funky or extreme wine - it can be some sort of experimental wine as well. In generel, the Brutal label looks the same, but in some cases, the winemaker is allowed to change the style a bit. In this case, the rising start Johan Meyer’s “Mother Rock Brutal !” is vinified with 100% whole bunches of Chenin Blanc with 2 weeks of maceration in concrete egg. The soils are granitic sands with Koffie Klip (iron-rich duricrust) over clay. Compared with other Brutals I’ve had, this one’s less crazy but more approachable to most people (I guess). This is a juicy fruit bomb of a thirst-quencher.
The nose is filled with heavy elderflower, pineapple, kiwi, apple, canned peach and a mild perfumed scent of sage and lychee.
The palate is soft with medium+ acidity and a prickling minerality. Apple, canned pineapple, tangerine, white tea kombucha and white winegum on the tongue.
Yes please - looking forward to next summer! #wine #winelover #cheninblanc #motherrockwines #swartland #southafrica #southafricanwine #naturalwine #biodynamicwine #organicwine #brutal #brutalwine #sommelier #wein #wineporn #instawine #finewine #topwine #vin #vino #vinblanc #winefolly #gastronomia #vinobianco #orangewine #amberwine #winereview #vinnaturel #copenhagen #wineblogger
