Wanderer's Heart` Cape Red Blend, Thorne & Daughters, Western Cape, South Africa 2019 `
Bright ruby in colour. On the nose, well-defined aromas of black cherry, blackberry and ruby grapefruit combine with spicy notes of cinnamon and cedar. On the palate, the wine is poised with soft, chalky tannins and a vibrant acidity which carries the pure fruit flavours onto the lingering finish.
The ‘Wanderer’s Heart’ is made from a blend of grapes from carefully selected growers across the Western Cape. The Grenache is sourced from dry farmed vineyards on the Paardeberg mountain in the Swartland which has a combination of clay and granite soils. The Mourvèdre is the fruit of 12-year-old vines planted on clay/gravel soils in Bot River. The Syrah also comes from Bot River from 12-year-old vines planted on shale. The vineyards are all farmed sustainably and harvesting is done by hand.
