Thelema was a charming fruit farm until Gyles and Barbara Webb purchased the Helshoogte gem in 1983. Thelema is one of the highest and coolest estates in Stellenbosch and the deep red soils have produced one of South Africa’s icon Merlots since the 1990s.

 

‘Good ruby-red. Enticing aromas of currant, dark chocolate, minerals and leather. Sweet on entry, then silky and suave in the middle, with a lovely lightness of texture… Finishes long and suave, with firm tannins and lingering berry, chocolate and espresso flavors. Thelema has long been known for producing some of South Africa's best merlots, and this bottle is a superb example.’  Stephen Tanzer, Vinous.com, 90/100
