100% Cabernet Sauvignon

Mindful that no single vineyard can satisfy the needs of all grape varieties, Neil Ellis set out to identify distinct terroir in which individual varieties will excel. He placed the emphasis not only on the environment but also on caring viticultural practices by a dedicated team of growers which extends through to the winemaking practices.

Today the journey of Neil Ellis Wines is not only of Neil Ellis anymore. After four decades of making wine, the next stage of the journey has begun with Neil's son, Warren, sharing responsibilities of winemaker and viticulturist in the pursuit of quality winemaking. Neil's youngest son, Charl heads the financial team while his daughter Margot fulfills the role of brand manager.

Tasting notes:
'Made in comparatively big volumes (34,000 bottles to be precise), this combines fruit from Bottelary and Jonkershoek, along with 3% Tempranillo. It’s a classy, well-balanced example of Stellenbosch Cabernet: youthful, scented, polished and structured with leafy, savoury complexity. 2018-24.' – Tim Atkin South African Special Report 2017, 92/100

'Classic cab cassis, cigarbox & fine leather aromas in 14. Sweet fruited, underpinned by good tannin structure. More generous than austere but impressive 13.' – Platters Wine Guide 2018, 4*
