Mother Rock 2018 Force Majeure CinsaultRegular price £17.95
Mother Rock is a project making fine natural wines from various organically farmed vineyards around South Africa. The Force Majeure Cinsault is a great example - tart, with a sour cherry character, chalky texture and a savoury edge. It is unashamedly natural wine, and a beautiful, pure expression of Cinsault.
Surprisingly dark for Cinsault. So pretty on the nose, scented ripe sour cherry, and chalky textured and deep but fresh-fruited on the palate. This is Cinsault Max, aromatic, super-fresh and with perfectly judged dry tannins. I think it will age well but it’s hard to resist now. Good value.
