Neil Ellis Jonkershoek Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

100% Cabernet Sauvignon

A single vineyard, small batch, whole-berry fermentation was initiated in a stainless steel tank. The grapes underwent a series of punch-downs and pump-overs until dry. No barrels were used maturing this wine, a pure expression of Cabernet Sauvignon from the Jonkershoek Valley.

Tasting Notes: Intense dark colour. The nose shows restraint, with aromas, of cassis and cedar, so typical of the Jonkershoek Valley. The palate is nervous and fresh, followed by fine, dense and tight tannins. A wine that is built to last.

Ready for drinking now until 2033.

Winemaker: Warren Ellis
