Neil Ellis Cabernet Sauvignon
Produced from Jonkershoek Valley fruit and further parcels of grapes sourced from complementary sites within the Stellenbosch area, this wine spent 18 months in a 25% 1st fill French oak barrel, the balance in 2nd, 3rd and 4th fill barrels. It is deep, dark garnet in colour with a bright ruby edge. Aromas of currants, blackberries and plums follow onto a palate with compelling mouth-filling flavours of cherry and plum with some black pepper spice. This full bodied wine finishes with soft tannins and a hint of peppery cassis.
Neil Ellis Wines’ philosophy to produce distinctive, refined wines that express the inimitable attributes of their terrain. Today the same philosophy remains their mainstay.
On the nose: bright aromatic sweet fruit with spicy varietal notes.
On the palate: fine, elegant, nicely framed attractive palate with cedar undertones.
