Our association with Thelema goes back to 1995. They were the first of the original new wave in Stellenbosch to plant and produce beautiful fresh pure wines. We've always loved what they do and have shipped from them many times. Some years ago they had the foresight to plant in Elgin, as well, which is now emerging as a world-class region for Chardonnay. This is amazing Chardonnay for the price.


Tasting Notes

Toast and butterscotch first greets you on the nose, with a hint of vanilla yoghurt. Pineapple in syrup, fresh mango and lime juice follow, injecting vigour and exuberance. This couldn't be anything other than New World Chardonnay, but then it's not pretending to be anything else, and it's one heck of a nice example at that. Delve beyond the initial hit of toast and you will discover a wine full of depth and flavour.


Press Note:

"An alluring, meaty, aromatic, reductive nose - complex stuff. It is dense, smoky and mineral. Very classy!" Tim Atkin MW "Just like a young premier cru Burgundy - super linear with rapier acidity." Greg Sherwood MW
