User Reviews for Thelema Mountain Vineyards Riesling

Winemaker's Notes:

In July 1983 the McLean Family Trust bought the old fruit farm Thelema, situated on the top of the Helshoogte Pass about 6 kilometers outside of Stellenbosch. This purchase was the culmination of a long search by Gyles and Barbara Webb for that rare location where exceptional wines could be made, for this is their sole intention. 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. This Riesling is pale yellow in colour with lively flashes of lime green around the edges. It is ripe, fruit driven nose, packed with grapefruit aromas and hints of richer, tropical fruits, the palate is refreshingly crisp, with citrus rind, marmalade and honeyed fruit flavours, finishing dry and racy with a cleansing citrus streak.
