Rocking Horse is Thorne and Daughters cornerstone wine and takes its name from a wooden rocking horse that was made for John and Tasha Seccombe’s daughter out of old oak barrel staves. Rocking Horse is Thorne and Daughters signature wine and it is where all the work comes together to make their most complete wine. The wine is composed from a number of carefully selected vineyard sites in the Western Cape made up of 36% Roussanne from Stellenbosch / Paardeberg, 25% Semillon Blanc from Franschhoek, 22% Chenin Blanc from Paardeberg, 11% Chardonnay from Stellenbosch and 6% Clairette Blanche. The aromas are of yellow plum, kumquat, lemon thyme, soft brioche and crushed oyster shell. In the mouth, the wine starts broad and rich, resolving into a keen line of acidity supported by a gentle tannin.
