Platters Awards 4.5 *
This wine from Thelema Mountain Vineyards is one of our most popular Sauvignon Blancs and well worth buying online. Unwooded and well-balanced, with fresh melon and grapefruit flavours, and a full palate and zesty finish. Notes of zesty grapefruit and fresh melon greet the nose. On the palate you can expect grassy, herbaceous tones.
Enjoy is with subtly flavoured dishes such as scallops, oysters, chicken and a garden salad. It can also be served as an aperitif. This Sauvignon Blanc can be drunk up to two years from vintage.
After falling in love with the wines of Puligny-Montrachet, former accountant Gyles Webb packed away his adding machine in Durban and moved the family to Stellenbosch. Converting a dilapidated fruit farm into vineyards, the pioneering producer quickly garnered recognition and accolades for his minimal interference winemaking philosophy and his pure and unmanipulated benchmark bottlings. In 2002, Webb expanded his operation to the cool climate coastal region of Elgin where the winery produces its Sutherland line of wines.
