PRODUCER
Few South African winemakers have done more to champion elegance and terroir than Neil Ellis. His winemaking career spans four decades, and he bottled the first wines under the Neil Ellis label in 1986. Since 2006 he has been joined by his son Warren, who looks after both winemaking and viticulture. The philosophy has always been to seek out ideal vineyard sites for the different grape varieties on offer, and to tend those vineyards with the utmost care for the environment.

VINEYARD
Groenekloof is situated near Darling on the West Coast and consist of a series of hills running parallel to the ocean. With fairly consistent weather, cold breezes from the Southern Atlantic Ocean and cool prevailing southwesterly winds, the grapes in the Groenekloof ward are ensured a long ripening period for maximum aroma development. The deep, red decomposed granite has a good water holding capacity which is suitable for dryland cultivation. This wine comes from bush vines planted eight kilometres from the ocean, at 350 metres above sea level.

WINERY
The juice was clarified, racked and fermented at low temperatures, then spent five month on lees before bottling.
