Neil Ellis Auction Reserve Syrah 2003

Careful fruit selection before traditional punch down fermentation. Malolactic fermentation completed in new French oak barrels followed by a further 16 months maturation. Rigorous barrel culling before bottling. Tasting Note: Dark black cherry colour with the nose showing distinctive Jonkershoek Valley perfume. Stylish cedar oak blends well with savoury, earthy notes over plum and raspberry fruits. Impressively structured, layered and integrated with tannin and oak that are balanced, evident but not showy.
