Thelema is situated at the top of the Helshoogte Pass with elevations that range between 370 to 640 meters above sea level and mainly south-facing slopes, it is also one of the highest and coolest estates in the area. The high altitude and the deep red soils are ideal for premium quality wine grape production.

Tasting notes:
'Complex and stylish, with aromas of ripe blackcurrant, dark chocolate and pencil shavings. This wine is bone dry, yet exhibits a lovely sweet fruit character on the palate, with a lovely long finish.' – Wine Maker

Viticulture:
2016 was generally a warm and dry vintage, an exceptionally dry winter followed by a warm and windy January resulted in decreased crop levels among all varietals.

Vinification:
De-stalked, hand sorting of berries, crushed, pumped into stainless steel tanks, pumped over for 8 days, left for 3 days before pressing, racked to barrel for malolactic fermentation. Wood maturation 18 months in barrel. 45% new French oak, balance in older barrels.
