An icon in the South African wine landscape, Thelema was recently rated one of the world's top 100 estates.

2016 was generally a warm and dry vintage, an exceptionally dry winter followed by a warm and windy January resulted in decreased crop levels among all varietals.

De-stalked, hand sorting of berries, crushed, pumped into stainless steel tanks, pumped over for 8 days, left for 3 days before pressing, racked to barrel for malolactic fermentation.

18 months in barrel. 45% new French oak, balance in older barrels.

Food pairing

A perfect accompaniment to grilled beef, especially with a Bernaise sauce and rocket salad.
