'Neil Ellis always knew how to get the best out of Darling Sauvignon Blanc and his son, Warren, continues the family tradition. Marrying nettley aromas with flavours of gooseberry and a hint of tropical fruit, this is appealingly fresh and youthful with tangy, crunchy acidity. Drink 2020-23.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2020, 91/100

'SA institution with distinctive nettle, greenpepper & dust characters. Pre-bottling, 2020 also an inherent uplifting energy & minerality, vivacious acidity & lengthy lemon-lime finish. Balanced 13.5% alcohol.' – Platter's Guide, 4.5* (90/100)

'Pale straw like colour with attractive green hues. Bright tropical citrus aromatics, with subtle undertones of fresh cut grass. The palate is elegant with delicately detailed citrus fruits and a lively acidity, refined minerality, poised palate, textured and a long flavoursome finish.' – Warren Ellis, Winemaker

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.
