Thorne & Daughters ‘Paper Kite’ Old Vine Semillon 2023


Paper Kite is picked from an old block of Semillon with some natural Semillon Gris mutations(Gris cuttings from this vineyard were planted for The Tin Soldier vineyard).

Christian Eedes, Winemag:
“Grapes from a 1963 Swartland vineyard. Lime, lemon, apple, honeydew melon, hay, fynbos and a hint of struck-match reduction on the nose. The palate has great fruit concentration, lively acidity and a pithy finish. This release seems to have a particular polish about it. 95/100”

John has drawn on the great history of wine growing here in the Cape, putting together old vineyard parcels with new grape cultivars, and making wines with old-school simplicity and a modern ‘edge’. His approach to wine making is simple, honest and gentle, and he is looking to make wines that tell a story, not wines that shout and bang a drum.
