Thelema Sutherland Chardonnay 2015 - April 2017 Decanter review
While Thelema in Stellenbosch kept flourishing, its owner, Gyles Webb felt it was time for a new challenge. He embarked on a search for the right property and terroir for a second vineyard. In 2002, the Webb family purchased an idyllic apple farm in the cool coastal region of Elgin. Shortly after, the 100ha property was converted into vines, beginning with Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay with more varietals being planted over time. And so, Sutherland Vineyards was born. All Sutherland wines are bottled and produced at the Thelema estate in Stellenbosch.
