‘SA classic from prime terroir, built for 10+ years. Liquorice, cedar & fresh herb overlay to pure cassis fruit, pinpoint acidity & fine-boned tannin, 2018 tightly focused exemplar of this wine’s signature elegance, harmony, latent power. All-new oak, 18 months, like standout 2017 (5 stars, 97 pts). 1.5L, 3L, 5L too, as most of these.’ – Platter's Guide, 4.5* (94/100)

‘One of only a handful of Cabernets that are made entirely with Jonkershoek grapes, this is showing some of the tannic structure of the 2018 vintage, but give it time to evolve. The underlying fruit is pure and refreshing, with classic mint, capsicum and blackcurrant intensity. 2023-28’ – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2021, 91/100

‘Intense dark colour. A pretty subtle, intriguing and appetizing nose with blue and blackberries and typical cedar aromas from the Jonkershoek Valley. The palate is nervous and fresh, followed by a well defined tannin structure. This is a wine built to last and early drinking would benefit with decanting.’ – 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.
