Neil Ellis Cabernet-Shiraz Blend Stellenbosch the Left Bank 2010

Member Review by thewineattic:

I love S.A. blends, this cab/shiraz opened up VERY nicely the 2nd day. It was very smooth. Big fruit, cherry aromas, anise, spicey. Medium finish, soft tannins. Great sipping wine as well with grilled meats and grilled root vegetables.

Neil Ellis Wines differs from most South African wineries in that instead of owning vineyards we have focused on producing the best wine possible and sourcing the grapes from top quality growers. Recognizing that different grape varieties thrive under different soil and climate conditions which are not likely to be found on a single estate, from our company's start our philosophy has been to locate those areas that produce a distinctive grape quality and work closely with quality-minded growers in those areas. Today our grapes come from three main vineyard sites: Oude Nektar Farm in Jonkershoek, Stellenbosch; Contreberg Farm in Groenekloof, Darling; the Whitehall farm in Elgin. Read less

Vintage: 2008 09/30/2010

Blended with 66% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Shiraz, and 14% Merlot this full bodied red wine has purple-red hues with a fine depth of color and has concentrated aromas of red berry fruits such as dark cherries, plums and spicy fruit cake layers that provide an uplifting intensity. The nose is clean and pure with rich dense fruits and the oak provides a caramel/mocha complexity. The long brooding and vibrant palate has an abundance of soft round juicy red berry fruits followed by anise spice and black pepper. Fine soft powdery tannins add structural focus and length.
