2016 Thelema Mountain Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

Stellenbosch is unquestionably the best South African wine region and here we have a tasty Sauvignon Blanc from a very well regarded producer. Subtle and quite different to the local style, it is pretty tropical citrus fruit flavours finishing fresh and elegant. A very welcome change.

Winemaker's Notes

Unwooded and well-balanced, with fresh melon and grapefruit flavours, and a full zesty palate.

Varietal: Sauvignon Blanc – Clones 133 ER, SV 316D, 159C, 11R and 7A.

Vintage: Cool summer days with very little rain, resulting in ideal growing conditions for grapes.

Winemaking Practise: De-stalked, crushed, pressed, settled & fermented in stainless steel tanks at 15•C.

Winemaker's Comments: A typical Thelema Sauvignon Blanc – lovely fresh melon and grapefruit flavours, with a full, zesty palate, all in perfect balance.

Maturation: Drinking well now, and will develop well for 2 years.

Food Pairing: As an aperitif or with delicately flavoured foods like salads, oysters, scallops and chicken.

Alc/vol: 12.5%
