Mountain Red 2019 Thelema

  • £16.95

Thelema is undoubtedly one of the most sought after names in South Africa. The farm comprises 157 hectares of land on the slopes of the Simonsberg Mountain, with elevation ranging from 370 to 640 metres above sea level on mainly south-facing slopes, making Thelema one of the highest and probably coolest wine farms in the Stellenbosch area.

A rich, spicy Rhone-style red, brimming with mulberries and plums, seasoned by a scattering of black pepper and sun-baked fynbos herbs. The high quality of both fruit and winemaking shine through in the finesse of its silky tannins and the harmony and balance on the sustained finish. Particularly good with light and medium flavoured meals, such as pizza and BBQ.
