Produced with grapes from vines growing in granite sand soils in Swartland. Although the vines in the vineyard are only 7 years old, the vineyard was planted with cuttings from an adjacent plot with vines that were planted in 1964. In contrast to buying new vines from a grower, this approach results in clonal diversity amongst the new vines and the retention of the characteristics of historical clones. 

Most of the grapes are crushed and the juice fermented on the skins for 7 days. Included in the final blend is a portion of wine that was produced using juice from whole bunch pressed grapes with no skin contact. This provides an enhanced aromatic component to the finished wine which perfectly complements the delicate savoury complexity created by the skin contact process.

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."
