Sutherland Vineyards is situated just 9 kms off the Atlantic Ocean with altitudes of 140 to 250 meters above sea level. The cool maritime climate allows for slower ripening of grapes than in other Cape Wineland areas. This produces wines with vibrant concentrated fruit flavours and an elegant minerality. All Sutherland wines are bottled and produced at the estate in Stellenbosch. The new Sutherland and classic Thelema ranges sharply contrast in character, but are equally satisfying.
