Thelema, Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml 2016South Africa, Stellenbosch
'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
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.
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.
