WHITE | BUTTER, BABY
Just think of anything yellow and delicious and you’re thinking of Paper Kite – butter, honey, peaches – they’re all here.

WHAT WE TASTE 
Yellow flowers and honey with a sprinkle of salt

PERFECT PAIRING
With plenty of conviction, she stands up boldly to an array of flavours but works well for some contemplative thinking-drinking if there’s no food around.

TEMP CHECK 
Give her a bit of time to shake the chill to better hear all she has to say.  Get her out of the fridge about 15 minutes before drinking.

ABOUT THORNE & DAUGHTERS
They say, quite simply, that they are raising handcrafted wines along with their two daughters. But we think John & Tasha Seccombe are doing so much more than that! They’re raising the profile of forgotten grapes, reflecting on the heritage of a complicated wine-producing country and thoughtfully capturing a new narrative of what that could become.

OUR FAVE THING ABOUT THIS WINE 
Mother vineyard to the Tin Soldier, Paper Kite is a celebration of the heritage and history of Semillon in South Africa.  It’s made from an old vineyard that includes a mix of both ‘normal’ Semillon and Semillon Gris – which is a mutation (Oh, yes! Grapes have mutants!) that’s almost entirely unique to South Africa – nobody is completely sure how it even happened!
