Thelema Mountain Red 2018
This wine shows inviting aromas of juicy black fruit, mulberries, plums and hints of warm spice. After spending 18 months in barrel, the palate is soft and juicy with well rounded tannins and a long, delicious finish.
Particularly good with light and medium flavoured meals, such as pizza or a braai (barbeque).
