Thelema Mountain Vineyards is located on the southeastern side of the Simonsberg, with vineyards at an altitude of 530 meters above sea level. These are considered some of the highest elevations in Stellenbosch - the high elevation and soil profile are ideal for the production of premium wine grapes. Thelema believes that the quality of the grapes is the single most important factor in making a serious premium wine.

The Thelema Mountain Red is composed of 39% Shiraz, 33% Petit Verdot, 25% Grenache, 3% Cabernet Sauvignon - inspired by the Rhône. In the nose you will find notes of mulberry and plum. Completed with cracked black pepper and the local fynbos from the area. The tannins are well structured and offer an elegant finish. The Thelema Mountain Red is a wine of exceptional quality and with an excellent price-quality ratio. It's the perfect accompaniment to a typical South African braai!
