Cabernet Sauvignon, Thelema 

South Africa – 2017  

14.5% ABV  

Tasting Note: This wine has a complex nose of mint, blackcurrant and chocolate and the palate is juicy and ripe. There is a good layer of toasty oak in the background to complement the black cherry and cassis fruit flavours and grippy mid-palate tannin. Very long, clean and elegant on the finish. 

Food Matching: The intense berry fruit in this wine make it an excellent partner to dishes like roast turkey or try with a fine piece of British beef. 

Vineyard: Sourced from selected parcels planted between 1998 and 1999 in Hutton soils (decomposed granite) at a density of 3200 vines per ha. Vineyard practices include vertical hedge trellising, pruning to 2 bud spurs every 15cm and supplementary drip irrigation. 

Vinification: Harvest was carried out by hand. The bunches were de-stalked and the berries hand sorted before crushing and fermenting in stainless steel tanks. Pump overs were performed for 6 days before a further maceration of 5 days. After pressing, the wine was then racked to 50% new French oak barrels for malo-lactic fermentation and 20 months ageing.
