Wine maker notes
Vines up to 50 years old, growing in weathered primitive rock and loess soils, yield a profound, archetypal Veltliner that is rich in extracts.

Producer
It was his first taste of top Rhone bottlings that inspired Rudi Schultz, winemaker at the heralded Thelema Mountain Vineyards, to pursue a winemaking career. So when he decided to create an eponymous label, Syrah was the natural varietal of choice. Grapes for Schultz’s dazzling bottling are sourced from a vineyard in the Bottelary Hills ward of Stellenbosch and vinified at Thelema. Hailed as a “small production gem” and a “delicious fruit-driven Syrah” that “maintain[s] a sense of freshness and minerality,” the wine has earned a 90+ Wine Spectator rave in every vintage since its 2002 debut.
