'Classic chardonnay & pinot noir sparkling from Elgin grapes. Refined elegance & great length on 2016, long lees-ageing (42 months) gives brioche richness, with lemon & lime zing ensuring balance. 2015 (4 stars, 89 pts) was on lees 32 months.' – Platter's Guide, 4.5* (90/100)

'Prominent aromas of fresh citrus and Granny Smith apple. These follow through on the palate with a complex and toasty finish and lively bubbles.' – Winemaker

Producer information The name Thelema comes from the Abbey of Thélème, a place dreamt up by François Rabelais. He was a monk, a doctor and a writer in sixteenth-century France and his utopian Abbey went against the religious ideals of the day. Rabelais’ motto was ‘laughing and drinking are the proper characteristics of man...for by wine we become divine.’ Since Rabelais spent a lot of time thinking about and writing memorable quotes on wine, Thelema saw it fitting to name their vineyards after him.
