Neil Ellis Chardonnay Elgin 2010

Member Review by Amanda Schuster:

To me, this wine is very caveman-like, clubbing me on the head with flavors. Very agressive fruit and oak, no integration, everything up front. I prefer a more subdued style with fruit, acidity and other elements playing off each other instead of overpowering each other.

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

Chardonnay 2008 - Neil Ellis : Chardonnay 2008 - Weißwein von Neil EllisDas Glas wird von einem leuchtenden Grüngelb erfüllt. Das Bukett des Chardonnay 2008 von Neil Ellis begeistert mit intensiven Aromen von Nüssen, exotischen Früchten und einem Hauch Vanille. Am Gaumen spürt man viel cremigen Schmelz und eine herrlich frische Säure, die die Aromen von tropischen Früchten, Zitrus, Honigmelone und reifen Birnen untermalt. Im Hintergrund spielen dezente Holznoten mit dem Gaumen, überragen die Fruchtaromen aber nicht. Das edle und komplexe Aromenspiel wird von einem mittelgewichtigen Körper getragen. Der Wein zeigt sich sehr harmonisch vom Auftakt bis zum langen Finish.Gegrillter Fisch, gebratenes Gemüse mit Knoblauch oder Risotto Piemontese sind ein Genuss zu diesem Weißwein.Weingut: Neil EllisLand: SüdafrikaRegion: StellenboschRebsorte: 100% ChardonnayInhalt: 0,75 lAlkoholgehalt: 13,5 Vol.%Säuregehalt: 6,0 g/lRestsüße: 2,5 g/lFassreife: in Barriques gereift (9 Monate)Lagerfähgikeit: 2-3 Jahre ab JahrgangEmpfohlene Serviertemperatur: 6-8°C Weißwein > Südafrika > Stellenbosch
