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

Lightly spiced, pear and apple flavors and aromas. There's some nice creaminess but it's muted until the finish. Nice warming palate, baked apples and cinnamon.

A bit oaky on the nose. Quite a bit of acidity and tart. Hints of citrus and pear. A tangy, acidic finish.

Chardonnay 2009 - Neil Ellis : Chardonnay 2009 - Weißwein von Neil EllisDas Glas wird von einem leuchtenden Grüngelb erfüllt. Das Bukett des Chardonnay 2009 vonNeil Ellis begeistert mit intensiven Aromen von Nüssen, exotischenFrüchten und einem Hauch Vanille. Am Gaumen spürt man viel cremigenSchmelz und eine herrlich frische Säure, die die Aromen von tropischenFrüchten, Zitrus, Honigmelone und reifen Birnen untermalt. ImHintergrund spielen dezente Holznoten mit dem Gaumen, überragen dieFruchtaromen aber nicht. Das edle und komplexe Aromenspiel wird voneinem mittelgewichtigen Körper getragen. Der Wein zeigt sich sehrharmonisch 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
