PRODUCER: Thorne and Daughters Wines was started in 2012 by John and Tasha Seccombe to produce authentic wines in the beautiful Western Cape where they have made their home. It has been a long journey that has taken them around the world and brought them back here to where they first met. We are in love with the Cape, and they want us to taste the air and this sunshine through their wines.
WINEMAKING: The wine is composed from a number of carefully selected vineyard sites in the Western Cape.
Roussanne – 36% Stellenbosch / Paardeberg – 12 years old - decomposed granite / clay
Semillon blanc – 25% Franschhoek – 37 years old - alluvial soils
Chenin blanc – 22% Paardeberg 40 years old - decomposed granite
Chardonnay – 11% Stellenbosch 16 years old – decomposed granite
Clairette blanche – 6% Swartland 36 years old – decomposed granite
TASTING NOTE: The aromas are of yellow plum, kumquat, lemon thyme, soft brioche and crushed oyster shell. In the mouth, the wine starts broad and rich, resolving into a keen line of acidity supported by a gentle tannin.
