Thorne and Daughters Tin Soldier is a skin-fermented wine made from Semillon Gris, which is almost unique to South Africa, and a vestige of a time when Semillon was the grape on which the South African wine industry was built. The colour of the wine is unusual, having taken some bright copper tones from about a week’s fermentation on skins. An expressive nose with intense aromas of citrus peel and papaya combine with notes of spice, ginger, marzipan and buttered toast. The interplay between sweet and savoury aromas is a key point of interest in the ‘Tin Soldier’ and makes for a subtle and engaging wine. The palate is finely structured, with fresh acidity and full flavours of citrus, gooseberry and sesame seeds and Oolong tea. It is dry and delicate, while at the same time showing a core of richness and depth.
