Food Pairings for Thelema Sauvignon Blanc Mountain Estate
Really nice, crisp SA SB. Not too over the top and very drinkable.
This is the first vintage harvested from Thelema's new vineyards in Elgin, which over the past few years has demonstrated it's ideal climatic conditions for producing premium quality Sauvignon Blanc. The vines were planted in 2002 on Hutton (decomposed granite) soils at a density of 3200 vines per ha. Pale gold in colour with youthful flashes of lime green, the nose is aromatic with pungent 'green' aromas of bell pepper and fresh crushed herbs. On the palate the wine is medium bodied and dry with a mouthwatering streak of minerals, hints of sub-tropical fruit and a layer of grassy gooseberry flavours that merge sublimely with the limey, crisp finish. Elegant and lengthy. A very refreshing glass by itself, or pair it with fresh crustaceans or white fish. Copes beautifully with spicy Eastern dishes.
