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. The wine is composed from a number of carefully selected vineyard sites in the Western Cape. The aromas are of yellow plum, kumquat, sweet bay leaf and crushed oyster shell. In the mouth, the wine starts broad and rich, resolving into a keen line of acidity supported by a gentle tannin.
