TASTE
Beautifully aromatic Grenache, with spicy, plummy aromas mingling with dried herbs. The palate is full-bodied but without any heaviness, showing exceptional balance and mid-palate sweetness, leading to the trademark clean, dry finish of Grenache.

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
The mountainous Piekenierskloof region lies about a hundred miles north of Stellenbosch. This far from the coast, days are hot and nights very cold. These Grenache wines were planted on their own roots in 1954, and remain in perfect health on the sandstone and shale soils 500 metres above sea level.

WINERY
The wine began fermentation in stainless steel tanks, with pump-overs for extraction, and then completed fermentation and malolactic in barrel, with twenty percent new wood, where it remained for eighteen months.

PRESS
“Lush, offering cherry sauce, plum paste and cassis notes, with flickers of iron, bergamot and rooibos tea filling in on the dense, silky finish.” – 92 points, Wine Spectator, June 2013
