The grapes for the Rocking Horse were sourced from a number of very carefully selected growers around the Western Cape. The Roussanne and the Chardonnay come from younger vines, with an average age of 13 years planted in Stellenbosch and Paardeberg on a combination of clay and decomposed granite. Semillon Blanc from Franschhoek, Clairette Blanche from Stellenbosch and Chenin Blanc from Paardeberg add depth and textural complexity to this blended Cape white as they are sourced from old vines estimated to be approximately 40 years old.
