Juicy, upfront red fruit and concentrated flavours with just the right amount of tannin. Hints of dark chocolate on the finish complete this wonderfully balanced wine.

An organic approach to viticulture is followed, but the estate is not certified as being organic. No pesticides are used, yields are kept very low and strict canopy management is used.

More Information

Thelema

Situated on the slopes of the Simonsberg mountains on the wilder side of Stellenbosch, where the vineyards are at higher elevation and cooler thus producing fresher wines such as the prized Cabernet.

Merlot

Few grapes have been as enthusiastically embraced by wine producers worldwide as Merlot. Its earliest records place it on Bordeaux‘s ‘right bank‘ where the largest plantings are are still found. However, its soft, approachable nature means it has been planted extensively elsewhere. More tolerant of cooler growing conditions than Cabernet Sauvignon, there is great demand for its low-tannin, plummy Chilean incarnation as well as more demanding styles from low-yielding, well-placed vineyards across the world.
