Snakes & Ladders’ name takes its inspiration from the wild nature of the elevated bushvine vineyards high up in the West Coast Mountains, along with the highs and lows of farming these incredible parcels in such a challenging climate. It is this heat and water scarcity that keeps the roots of these vines searching for every ounce of nutrients they can extract from their deep red soils.

Tasting notes:
'From a Skurfberg Sauvignon Blanc vineyard planted in 1997. Intensely aromatic with notes of citrus, blackcurrant, granadilla and pineapple plus some leesy complexity. The palate is super-rich with a slightly oily texture but also has a great line of acidity – an extravagant rendition of the variety.' – Christian Eedes,, 92/100

'The wine that comes from these pristine grapes is deeply complex and we vinify it as simply as we can from whole bunch pressing the grapes to months of cool maturation in old oak barrels. On the nose there are aromas of wild grass with honey melon and warm citrus. The palate shows a voluptuous structure with notes of lime leaf, bergamot and dried pear all underpinned with a finely structured acidity.' – Winemaker

Alc: 13.8% | RS: 1.4 g/L | TA: 6.2 g/L | PH: 3.25

About Thorne & Daughters:
Thorne & Daughters Wines was started in 2012 by John and Tasha Seccombe with the aim to produce authentic wines in the beautiful Western Cape. John works with grapes from all over the Cape and seems to have a particularly refined aesthetic when it comes to winemaking. His Thorne and Daughters family concern is truly pushing the boundaries with old vines and simple, natural winemaking.
