Thelema Merlot Stellenbosch


Grape: Merlot 
A South African red wine from the Stellenbosch region using hand picked grapes matured for 18 months in French oak barrels, 30% new, with the remainder in older barrels. Bright aromas of red fruit with hints of cinnamon and liquorice flow on to a juicy, broad and ripe palate packed with red and black berry fruits. A firm, well integrated oak structure and a bold, well defined finish makes it a great food wine that will develop well for 6 years from vintage date.
