Lemon oil, yellow apple, thyme & vanilla flavors create an alluring mix, while minerally details impart lift & range. Roussanne, Chenin Blanc, Semillon, Clairette Blanche & Chardonnay. Drink now through 2027. Only 1,100 cases made, 150 cases imported".
"Rocking Horse is our cornerstone wine and takes its name from a wooden rocking horse that we made for our daughters out of old oak barrel staves. This is our signature wine and it is where all our work comes together to make our most complete wine.
The wine is composed from a number of carefully selected vineyard sites in the Western Cape. The aromas are of lime leaf, white peach, exotic woods, and sweet dried herbs. In the mouth, the wine starts broad and rich, resolving into a keen line of acidity supported by a gentle tannin with flavors of burnt sugar, orange flower & rooibos leaf". ---Winery
