TASTE
A very taut, poised Chardonnay, with appetizing apple and mineral aromas, perfectly balanced oak, and a concentrated yet finely-wrought palate structure.

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
Ten kilometres from the south coast of the Cape, Elgin is one of the country’s coolest viticultural areas, with an average temperature of 20°C during the month of February. The vines lie at an average of 300 metres above sea level, on sandstone and quartz over clay subsoil.

WINERY
The grapes were whole-bunch pressed, then the juice barrel fermented in French oak puncheons, with a small percentage of new wood. Partial malolactic fermentation was carried out and the wine matured for six months in oak before bottling.
