Thorne & Daughters 'Rocking Horse' Cape White Blend
"Including grapes from the Ceres Plateau for the first time, Rocking Horse is a pan-regional blend of Semillon, Roussanne, Chardonnay, Chenin Blanc and Clairette Blanche, with the harvest spread over a period of six weeks. Pear, citrus and stone fruit flavours combine to perfection here, with top notes of jasmine and wild herbs and a mineral, structured, slightly tannic core. 2021-26" 95/100 Tim Atkin MW South Africa 2021 Special Report White Wine of The Year
It's fresh with great complexity and great with food, think fish (even sushi) through to lightly spiced Asian food and white meats. Textural and intriguing, creamy and nutty with great acidity - its absolutely fabulous! Maybe the best Rocking Horse yet..
