2010 Thelema Mountain Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

It’s rare to see a South African wine on these shores - but apart from playing bloody good Rugby, the South Africans are also pretty handy at making wine. This comes from the Stellenbosch, one of the prettiest wine regions in SA where constant sunshine and cool nights have imparted some magic in to this Cabernet. Like watching the Springboks do a set piece, this is complex and stylish yet not as bruising as being in a scrum with John Smit. Bags of character here and it finishes long and firm like a full time drop goal and is just as winning.

Winemaker's Notes

Complex and stylish, with aromas of ripe blackcurrant, dark chocolate and pencil shavings. This wine is bone dry, yet exhibits a lovely sweet fruit character on the palate, with a lovely long finish.

Maturation: Already drinking well, and will develop for 8 years

Food pairing: A perfect accompaniment to grilled beef, especially with a Béarnaise sauce and rocket salad

Alc/vol: 14.38%
