Neil Ellis

Neil Ellis is a legend of South African winemaking and the first to gain 5 stars from the John Platter guide (the 'bible' for SA wines!) for Grenache. He made his first wine in 1984, selecting highest quality Stellenbosch grapes and renting cellar space. Today the winery is very much a family affair, with assistance from his children. They have won a huge haul of awards in the intervening years, including more 5 Stars, Golds and Trophies.

Tasting Notes

100% barrel fermented Chardonnay. Straw like colour with greenish hues. Attractive aromas of lemon zest, pear and white flower notes. Tightly structured palate with mouth watering acidity, balanced by subtle oak. Restrained mineral edge, with balanced richness, elegance and length.

Food Matches

Salmon and asparagus

Press Comments

Decanter World Wine Awards 2022 - Gold Medal. 95 points "Opulent nose with caramelised apples and crème brulee. Tangy with massive concentration, Granny Smith apples, lemon cured and riverbed pebbles, piercing acidity. Long, saline mineral finish. Wow."
