Product details

  • Variety

    Sauvignon Blanc
  • Thelema's cool climate Elgin vineyards are the perfect home for this classic Loire grape variety. The wine is light gold in colour with youthful flashes of lime green, and on the nose is aromatic with aromas of bell peppers and fresh crushed herbs. On the palate the wine is dry with a mouthwatering streak of minerals, hints of sub-tropical fruit and a layer of grassy gooseberry flavours that merge sublimely with a limey, crisp finish. Elegant and lengthy, this wine offers some lovely drinking at a very reasonable price.

Incredible price! Herbal, lime and grassy good. Very refreshing. Wonderful quaffer. This South African Sauvignon Blanc shows its roots in the cool climate of the Elgin region. Finishes with a whiff of ocean spray and terrific minerality. Try it with fresh oysters.

Natalie Maclean

Robert Mason of Cheese at Leadenhall praised this Gold Lister for its ‘saline nose with subtle, grassy tones, green apple and fresh grapefruit, elegance on the palate; well balanced with a delicacy of fruit, finishing fresh and clean for a very good, food-friendly wine’, while for Luciana Girotto-Beckett of Macellaio RC it was ‘sapid, with body, flinty minerals, fresh and rounded character and a leafy, balanced finish’. Team leader Laurent Richet MS added: ‘Lovely, fruity and appealing either by the glass or during dinner.’ Specifically, a match for risotto or scallops, thought New Street Grill’s Mauro Pirovano.
