'Serene & confident wooded sauvignon from Jonkershoek Valley, 2019 pristine blackcurrant fruit, whisper smoke from 9 months in mostly seasoned 500L barrels. 2018 (5 stars, 95 pts)’s lovely wet stone minerality repeated here, but overlaid with delicate mango.' – Platter's Guide, 4.5* (94/100)

'One of very few Sauvignon Blancs produced in the cooler, wetter Jonkershoek Valley, Amica is a naturally fermented white that sees 20% new wood. Tangy, elegant and showing aromas of white pepper, grapefruit and elderflower, subtle vanilla spice and a creamy mid palate. Beautifully judged. Drink 2021-25.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2020, 94/100

'Spontaneously fermented and matured for nine months in 500-litre barrels, 20% new. A hint of flinty reduction before citrus, peach, fennel and some leesy character. The palate is intense but not weighty – great fruit purity and bright acidity before an extra-long finish. All of a piece.' – Winemag Prescient Sauvignon Blanc Report 2021, Top 10 (94/100)

Producer information Neil Ellis has created a legacy. It began in 1984, when Neil Ellis sourced grapes from various Stellenbosch vineyards and produced wine in rented cellars. Today, the winery is a fully family-run affair with the Ellis children taking over various roles in the business. Warren Ellis heads up the winemaking with great success and, while building on their past, we can see a marked shift towards greater refinement and finesse.
