Neil Ellis Pinotage Stellenbosch 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

89 points Wine Enthusiast: Here's a surprisingly easy-to-drink Pinotage... with a gorgeous satiny texture and grainy but approachable tannins. Smoke, cured meat, red berries and sweet woody spice unfold on the nose and mouth, with a long cocoa-kissed finish sealing the deal nicely. A good choice for newbies and lovers of the variety.

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

Score another win for SA pinotage, a much-improved varietal wine in recent years. Nose of bouquet of flowers and mildly sweet cream. On the attack features vanilla and ripe cherry-berry. In the mouth medium bodied, intense, rich berry fruit. Balanced. Finish has about 3 seconds of fruit. Great for the price.

Dichtes, intensives Rot. Herrliche Aromen nach Kirschen und Pflaumen, feiner Duft nach Tabak. Gut integrierte, reife Tannine. Ein ausgewogener und eleganter Wein.
