Neil Ellis Rodanos 2007

Shiraz 61%, Grenache 39% Exquisite parcels of Jonkershoek Valley Syrah and Piekenierskloof Grenache were vinified separately in open top fermenters. Towards the end of fermentation, the wine was racked into 100% new oak where the wine completed fermentation. After malolactic fermentation, individual components were classified and selected for inclusion into this blend. 17 months barrel maturation followed. 100 cases of this wine were sold at the 2009 Auction. Tasting note: Deep in colour, this youthful elemental wine shows wonderful overlapping of aromas and flavours. Although oak is obvious on the nose, sweet ripe fruit is finely poised. Rich, ripe, generous soft mid-palate with a juicy impression is supported by layered complexity. Well defined fine-grained tannins will allow for continued evolving in the cellar over time. Drink now through to 2017.
