AN EXPRESSION OF STELLENBOSCH THROUGH AUTHORITY AND RICH TRADITION.
Situated on the South Easterly side of the Simonsberg Mountain with elevations 530m above sea level with mainly south-facing slopes, possessing some of the highest elevations in Stellenbosch. The high altitude and the rich red soils are ideal for premium quality wine grape production.
Through the understanding of our optimal climate and soil type, we have firmly entrenched ourselves as one of the leaders in Cabernet Sauvignon, placing Stellenbosch Cabernet’s firmly on the global wine map.
As we believe grape quality is the single most important factor in serious winemaking, our policy in one of minimum interference, allowing the wines to be a true expression of each vineyard.
A DEMONSTRATION OF ELGIN’S COOL-CLIMATE SERENITY.
The Elgin Valley is located 70km southeast of Cape Town in the Overberg region. It is uniquely set on a high plateau surrounded by four mountain ranges.
Sutherland Vineyards are situated just 9km off the Atlantic Ocean with altitudes of 140 to 250m above sea level, due to this proximity, ideal cool climate conditions are created. One can expect wines of linearity, accessibility and modernity.
Our winemakers emulate the same ethos when making Thelema as is used with Sutherland. The home of these wines can be found at Thelema Mountain Vineyards in Stellenbosch as this is where they are produced and bottled.
