Semillon Blanc; Semillon Gris
The grapes for this wine are sourced from a vineyard in Swartland that is 56 years old. The semillon blanc vines are an old clone that is rarely found today, and produce grapes with a very distinctive flavour that is less aromatic than those from modern clones. The vineyard also includes the occasional semillon gris vine and their grapes are included in the harvest.
The grapes are crushed in an old basket press and the juice allowed to settle before being transferred to old oak barrels in a variety of sizes. No sulphur dioxide is added prior to fermentation, which occurs with natural yeasts, and is followed by malolactic fermentation. After aging in the barrel, the wine is bottled without fining or filtration.
Thorne and Daughters Wines was established by John and Tasha Seccombe in 2012. Their objective is to produce wines that "tell a story of the Cape of Good Hope."
