Thorne & Daughters Cat’s Cradle Old Vine Chenin Blanc 2023


Region: Swartland

Tasting note:

“Grapes predominantly from the Paardeberg. Elusive aromatics of pear, peach, soft citrus and hay. The palate is nicely weighted – not as austere as some examples of the variety from the area. Fine and detailed – pure fruit, well-integrated acidity and a gently savoury finish.” – CE 96pts

“This is a very clear and bright expression of Chenin blanc, with aromas of Chinese pear, yellow apple, and lime leaves. A rich, beeswaxy palate is full of salty almonds, light honey and elderflower. The finish is long, textured and pithy. This is a wine that will reward some time in the cellar to allow its full aromatic expression to develop.” – Winemaker
