Cape Winemakers Guild

Neil Ellis Auction Reserve 2005

Careful fruit selection before traditional fermentation initiated in stainless steel tanks. Further maceration allowed before drawing off and light pressing. Maturation in tight grained French oak for 21 months followed by rigorous barrel culling before bottling in January 2007. Tasting note Deep red, purple in colour, the wine has high-toned blackcurrant, violet and cedar aromas with touches of mint, so typical of a Jonkershoek wine. A rich, ripe opulent but youthful palate has plumy fruit, a background of new oak and fine tannins. This is a multi-faceted wine that needs time to mature.
