Thorne & Daughters ‘Wanderer’s Heart’ Cape Red 2021


WO Western Cape
John Seccombe: The Wanderer’s Heart is our Cape Red – a wine that is built around the incredible vineyards found all over the Western Cape. Over the past few years, we have slowly dialled up the Syrah component in this wine to take advantage of these wonderful dark, peppery wines that compliment the other components so well. The wine is focused, with mulberries, black olive flesh and cedar wood on the nose. The tannins are supple and integrated into a fresh palate of cranberries and woody spices.
Christian Eedes: Striking aromatics of red berries, olive, fynbos, pepper and spice while the palate is light-bodied but intensely flavoured – pure fruit, snappy acidity and powdery tannins. Great energy and an especially dry finish. 92/100.

Syrah, Grenache, Mourvèdre, Carignan

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.
