'Consisting of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Petit Verdot, maturation lasted 20 months in 225-litre barrels, 100% new. The nose shows red and black berries, violets, some herbal character plus toasty oak while the palate is relatively lean with fresh acidity and very fine tannins. If the 2017 impressed with its fruit density, then this is austere in the best sense, alcohol a mere 13.32%.' - Christian Eedes,, 93/100.

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.
