Absolute bargain alert!!

 

One of our absolute favourite producers anywhere in the world, Thelema. Truly one of the most beautiful wineries that we have had the pleasure of working with, especially the online Zoom tastings that we have done with owner Thomas Webb. This wine will get everyone talking around the dinner table...or if you just want a rich, juicy bottle of red whilst watching the TV. A curious yet delicious blend of Shiraz 37%, Petit Verdot 24%, Merlot 19%, Grenache 10%, Cabernet Sauvignon 10%, this is a really well balanced bottle of juice that brings some great characteristics of each variety to the table.

Nose:

Inviting aromas of juicy black fruit, mulberries, plums and hints of warm spice.

Palate:

After spending 18 months in barrel, the palate is soft and juicy with well rounded tannins and a long, delicious finish.
