This wine, named after the Rocking Horse that the owners John and Tasha Seccombe made from barrel staves for "the Daughters," is the one that they feel defines their winemaking style.  

The wine is produced with grapes from specially selected vineyard plots around the Western Cape: the roussane from Stellenbosch and Paardeberg grown on decomposed granite / clay soils; the semillon blanc from alluvial soils around Franschhoek; the chenin blanc from 40 year old vines grown around Paardeberg in decomposed granite; the chardonnay from Stellenbosch decomposed granite soils; the clairette from decomposed granite around Swartland. 

The grapes are crushed as whole bunches, then the juice racked off into old oak barrels of varying sizes for fermentation with natural yeasts. Malolactic fermentation takes place before a period of aging on the fine lees.

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."
