Eberle Cabernet Sauvignon Vineyard Selection 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

The vintage is an exceptional vintage displaying an 'old world' elegance with rich black currant, dark cherry flavors with a hint of mocha wrapped in velvety tannins. The lush, dark berry fruit balanced by notes of oak and velvety tannins makes our Estate Cabernet Sauvignon a hearty companion to an oven roasted lamb loin with an herb crust, barbequed rib-eye with a Béarnaise sauce or braised short ribs with a simple reduced red wine sauce.

Thelema Mountain Vineyards:
The farm comprises 157 ha of land on the slopes of the Simonsberg. The elevation ranges from 370 to 640 meters above sea level of mainly south-facing slopes, making Thelema one of the highest and probably coolest wine farms in the Stellenbosch area.

The farm comprises 157 ha of land on the slopes of the Simonsberg. The elevation ranges from 370 to 640 meters above sea level of mainly south-facing slopes, making Thelema one of the highest and probably coolest wine farms in the Stellenbosch area. Although wine had been made on the farm in the early part of the century and table grapes produced until the late 1960's, there were no vines on the farm at the time of purchase. The 25 ha under cultivation consisted of plums, apples and pears in varying stages of degeneration. The neglected state of the farm could not detract from its charm - there are spectacular views of the Simonsberg, Drakenstein and Jonkershoek Mountains and the farm is dotted with enormous oak trees. It has, however, involved an enormous effort to convert Thelema into a wine farm. The farm workers housing has been renovated and new cottages built and the old Cape Victorian farmhouse restored. The orchards have gradually made way for vineyards and virgin mountainside cleared and prepared to increase the arable land to about 40 ha. Detailed tests of the soil have revealed them to be high potential decomposed granite with excellent water-retention capacity. Read less

Flavorful black currant, dark cherry and hints of mocha with velvety tannins. Delicious and well structured. Great balance. Very nice! 93 pts. 8/31/12 at winery

Intensiv glänzendes Rubinrot mit sehr dunklem Kern; in der Nase sehr vielschichtig, Noten von Tabak, Cassisbeeren, Edelhölzer und einem Hauch Schokolade. Süsslicher Auftakt im Gaumen, mundfüllend und körperreich, reife Brombeeren, Peperoni, feine Röstaromen und etwas Süssholz in der Rückaromatik spürbar. Ein sehr eleganter und harmonischer Cabernet mit langem Abgang.

Leuchtendes Ziegelrot, frisches, beeriges Bouquet, sehr typisch als Cabernet zu erkennen. Äußerst kräftiger, wuchtiger Wein, Säure sehr zurückhaltend, gut ausbalanciert. Gehört zum Besten, was es in Südafrika an Rotweinen zu kaufen gibt.
