THORNE & DAUGHTERS CAT'S CRADLE CHENIN BLANC

Swartland Chenin blanc needs no introduction, having long assumed its place among the world’s key expressions of Chenin Blanc. Langkloof, the source for this wine is an old bush vine Chenin blanc vineyard planted on the granite slopes of the Paardeberg that belongs to the Roussouw family.

An enormous amount of work went into the vineyard during the 2017-2018 growing season to ensure that the vineyard could carry a healthy and balanced crop. Picking was done with a clear eye on the acidity of the crop which can fall away dramatically during the harvest due to low water reserves in the soil.

This is a very clear and bright expression of Chenin blanc, with ground almonds, frangipane flowers, and white peaches on the nose. The palate is poised and fresh with great concentration and “drive” from the vineyard.
