Neil Ellis Chardonnay Stellenbosch 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

90 points Wine Spectator: Delightful, with the plump melon and hazelnut notes typical of the grape, offset by vibrant floral and citrus oil notes. Stays really fresh on the finish, without sacrificing weight. Could bring the ABC crowd back to Chardonnay. Drink now through 2010. 300 cases imported. (2009)

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

Wine Tasting NotesLight goldish green. Very youthful lime/ lemon aromas and some subdued oak. Pleasing ripe melon/ tropical fruit flavors, restrained mineral edge with excellent length and elegance.

Sehr reiches, blumiges Bouquet, untermauert durch feine Tannine mit einem Hauch von Hefe. Im Körper erfrischend und nicht allzu schwer. Schöner, eleganter Abgang.

Wine Tasting NotesAttractive green tints. Tight lemony/lime aromas with green apple and a touch of vanilla. Tight focused palate with citrussy fruit and an elegant long finish.
