Thelema Mountain Red

Generous dark berry, currant and plum flavors combine with notes of earth, black pepper and spice. This approachable, crowd pleasing red displays soft, supple tannins, lovely plummy fruitiness, lots of spice and considerable depth of character. So luscious, so drinkable. A great all-rounder.

More information:
Thelema is situated on the slopes of the Simonsberg, with elevations ranging from 1,215 to 2,100 feet above sea level, making the estate one of the coolest and highest wine farms in Stellenbosch, South Africa. Owner Gyles Webb, a former accountant, abandoned his practice to study viticulture and oenology. In 1988 he produced Thelema's first vintage. Described as a rebel and a visionary, he crafted high quality, small production wines while most of his neighbors focused on quantity. In 2000, Gyles “Mr. Precision” Webb moved into the role of cellar master and handed over the winemaking reins to the talented Rudi Schultz. Thelema has continued its steady ascent under Rudi’s keen hand, as evidenced by Wine Spectator's recent declaration that the estate’s wines are “among the few South African bottlings that can boast a solid track record of both quality and ageability.” The estate has continued to gain international acclaim as one of South Africa’s elite wine producers. Mountain Red offers Thelema pedigree at a fraction of the price. Generous dark berry, currant and plum flavors combine with notes of earth, black pepper and spice. This approachable, crowd pleasing red displays soft, supple tannins.
