Food Pairings for Thelema Merlot Stellenbosch
The grapes for this wine was sourced from established vines which were planted in 1988 in Hutton soils (decomposed granite) at a density of 3200 vines per ha. Deep, brooding purple in colour with some brick red highlights. The nose has pretty red-fruit characters with some hints of spices such as cinnamon and liquorice. The palate is juicy, broad and ripe, packed with red and black berry fruits, a firm, well integrated oaky structure and a bold, well defined finish which makes it a great food wine. This lighter and more elegant style of Merlot is ideal with more delicate game dishes or with lamb.
