Thelema has become one of the stars of South African wine. Their Merlot is richly perfumed with coffee and ripe plum flavors, and remarkably friendly tannins. This bottle is highly sought after; taste why.

Winemaker's Notes:

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.
