Thelema Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

A classic Cabernet Sauvignon from Thelema Mountain Vineyards in Stellenbosh, one of the Cape's most admired estates founded by owner Gyles Webb
TKIN0377

Complex and stylish with aromas of ripe blackcurrant, dark chocolate and pencil shavings. Though bone dry, there is a lovely sweet fruit character on the palate and a long finish. Though already four years old, this wine is expected to live and evolve for many a long year ahead.

About Kinnegar

Kinnegar Wines was born almost by accident and been growing organically since.

In 1998, I was in the midde of a two year diploma course with the London Wine & Spirits Trust when an opportunity came up to visit South Africa's Western Cape. Naturally, I was keen to avail of the opportunity to learn more about viticulture and winemaking in South Africa.

We had an excellent guide who brought us to a number of the Cape's leading estates including Thelema and De Trafford where we had in depth vineyard and cellars tours. At the end of the day, I wanted to take back some of the wonderful wines we had tasted for our own use. It was not possible to take two or three cases of wine with us on our flight and shipping such a small quantity was more than the cost of wines. So I had the mad idea of shipping a pallet! Clearly, I had to start selling these wines and so began Kinnegar Wines. Ashford Castle took many of the wines and continue to list them and newer arrivals ever since.
