‘If anyone is a Merlot specialist in Stellenbosch then it's Thelema. This "entry-point" bottling is made with two Italian clones planted in 2000 and it's a stylish, elegant, leafy red, with 30% new wood, some cut grass top notes and granular tannins. 2022-27’ – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2021, 92/100

‘Long-standing SA benchmark & paragon of reliability. Bright-fruited 2019 with choc-mocha notes & tobacco from 30% new oak, as smooth, elegant & effortlessly enjoyable as 2018 (90 pts), but with added focus, lift from favourable harvest.’ – Platter’s Guide, 4.5* (91/100)

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.
