More Information

In the cellar

Made through wild fermentation and oaking in old French oak, the grapes were whole bunch pressed using a Champagne pressing cycle to ensure only the finest quality juice being used. The fermentation occurred naturally in 500 ℓ puncheons of which 20% was new. The wine spent 9 months in 500 ℓ French oak barrels.

In the vineyard

The source of the fruit is a single vineyard site from the Jonkershoek Valley, Stellenbosch. The soil consists of decomposed granite and quartz.


This wine ages wonderfully and can be aged for a further eleven years if stored in the correct conditions.


Sauvignon Blanc

Food Pairing

This wine pairs very well with seafood and light spicy food such as green Thai curry.

About the Wine Estate

In 1984 Neil Ellis sourced grapes from vineyards not of his own and produced wine in rented cellar space. These grapes were sourced in the Stellenbosch district and meant a lot of nosing around the restrictive quota system prevalent at the time. His vision, the pursuit of quality, extended out of the cellar and into the vineyards where varieties would excel and best express a particular style of wine reflective of their environment. Today, the experience and knowledge of the past are applied to modern techniques and technologies for a new generation of winemaking. Neil Ellis Wine's vision remains to make distinctive, refined wines that are expressive of their terrain and rank amongst South Africa’s finest. A pursuit of quality, nothing less.
