Schultz Family Wines is the own label of Rudi Schultz, who is the winemaker at Thelema in Stellenbosch. Two parcels, a 43-year-old vineyard in Somerset West and a 58-year-old vineyard in Paarl, were whole-bunch pressed and naturally fermented in old barrels and aged on the primary lees for 9 months. It’s a wine full of detail. White blossom, white pear, peach lemongrass and herbaceous scrub on the nose, expanding into a waxy, mineral palate. Nicely textured, it still manages to finish bone dry. Haunting in the best possible way.

P.S: The labels of the range, depicting Rudi’s favourite surf spots, won gold at the Wine Label Design Awards 2019
