Thorne & Daughters ‘Wanderer’s Heart’ Cape Red 2019


Grenache noir – 66% Voor Paardeberg (7 years, clay soil), Paardeberg (14 years old, granite)
Mourvèdre – 23% Bot River (12 years old) – gravel/clay duplex soil
Syrah – 11% Bot River (12 years old) – shale

Christian Eedes: “66% Grenache, 21% Mourvèdre and 12% Shiraz – no Cinsault in this vintage and arguably more refined as a result. A pretty nose with top notes of flowers, herbs and spice before wild berry. The palate is light-bodied with lovely fruit purity, fresh acidity and powdery tannins. Accessible without being simple, this has lip-smacking refreshment value.

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. The “Wanderer’s Heart” Cape Red Blend was added to the range from the 2016 vintage.
