Thorne & Daughters Rocking Horse 2016 (doos)


Doos 6 flessen.

Prachtige complexe witte blend.


Rocking Horse is our cornerstone wine and takes its name from a wooden rocking horse that we made for our daughters out of old oak barrel staves. The wine is composed from a number of carefully selected vineyard sites in the Western Cape. The aromas are of lime leaf, white peach, exotic woods, and rosemary. In the mouth, the wine starts broad and rich, resolving into a keen line acidity supported by a gentle tannin.

Thorne & Daughters Rocking Horse White Blend 2015 93/100 The blend of grapes may change from year to year (the 2015 combines Roussanne with Semillon, Chenin Blanc, Chardonnay and a splash of Clairette), but the quality of this multiregional  wine    is    very    consistent.    Refined,    leesy    and    herbal,    with    notes    of    honeysuckle,    pear   and fennel, great texture and vibrant acidity.
