Thelema 'Sutherland' Chardonnay 2015

South Africa

We have been selling this fabulous wine from Thelema's cool climate Sutherland vineyards in Elgin for a few vintages now. It's been over 20 years since Gyles Webb from Thelema did a tasting at NYW and his wines have had a presence ever since.
This has had some amazing press is and now in stock. It's a fabulous value.
(Under 13 by the case! these notes were written a few month back)
Rated 'Outstanding' by Decanter Magazine, 96/100 points

Tim Atkin MW (Decanter Magazine): "An alluring meaty, aromatic, reductive nose - complex stuff. It is dense, smoky and mineral, as well as long and savoury with tangy acidity. This has lovely focus and a fine, tapering finish. Very classy!" 96 points

John Hoskins MW (Decanter Magazine): "Struck match complexity comes through to the fore; it is modern and very expressive. A truly fine Chardonnay. Spice and tightly wound richness combines with excellent freshness underpinning the whole. How can this be under 13?! This is where South Africa rules the roost - exceptional, unbeatable value in the mid-price tier. " 96 points

Greg Sherwood MW (Decanter Magazine): "It is hard to deny the complex nose of struck match reduction on this wine, which mingles with green pears and dusty granitic minerality. Lean and austere, just like a young premier cry Burgundy: super linear with rapier acidity. Serious stuff - I love it." 95 points
