A classy natural South African - JM Meyer's Ivory White

JM Meyer ivory white

I don’t know a great deal about this wine, other than it’s a naturally made my Johan Meyer, who makes the wines of Mount Abora and Meerhof. Johan is based in the Swartland but for his own wines he sources from vineyards further afield. 1000 bottles of this were made and the UK agent is Indigo Wines.

JM Meyer Wines Ivory White 2012 Coastal Region, South Africa
12.5% alcohol. Deep yellow colour. Powerful nose of spice, ripe apples and pears with a hint of honeyed richness. The palate has a tangy, spicy, citrussy core with lovely acidity supporting the complex pear and apple fruit. A really attractive wine. 93/100

  • This is the first bottling of Johan Meyer’s minimal-intervention blend of Chenin and Grenache Blancs, Viognier and Clairette.
    We’ve had it listed for a couple of months now and only praise so far. Doesn’t sell in the same quantities as the wave of Spanish sub £20 90+ Parker wines, but Ivory White is the kind of wine I love to sell.
    Come on HarperWells customers, get behind this wine.
