Thorne & Daughters Rocking Horse 2020
- South Africa
The white blends and alternative varietal wines of South Africa never cease to amaze us. This blend of roussanne, semillon, chenin blanc, chardonnay and clairette blanche is a carefully-calculated mosaic of ripe, supple fruit, with pitch-perfect texture and just the right weight of richness. Clearly, the blend offers a new palate of flavours that you wouldn’t manage to achieve by single varieties alone. To give you an idea, think white and yellow peach, with gentle spice and a hint of brioche. This wine is the result of some of the very finest fruit combined with inconceivably masterful winemaking. Not only does it offer a truly unique flavour profile that can’t really be found anywhere else, but the quality is laid bare with every sip for all to see. The best way to find out is to try it. It will not disappoint.

Tasha Seacombe is one half of the dynamic duo at Thorne & Daughters.
“35% Semillon from Franschhoek, 28% Roussanne from both Stellenbosch and Paardeberg, 16% Chardonnay from Ceres Plateau, 15% Chenin blanc from Paardeberg and 6% Clairette blanche from Swartland. Aromatics that tantalise and beguile – pear, peach, lime, green apple plus nutty, earthy, waxy notes. The palate has weight but also focus – great fruit concentration, driving acidity and a savoury finish. Taut in structure, intricate in flavour profile. Perhaps not as obviously pleasurable as the superb 2019 but compensates for this by offering plenty worthy of intellectual contemplation.”
