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

A unique and delicious blend of 57% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Shiraz and 10% Merlot, this South Africa Red comes from the admired Neil Ellis winery. It scored 90 pts and a Best Buy in Wine Enthusiast magazine which wrote "Vibrant fruit and muscular tannins are integrated by clean minerality." It's a lively, mouthfilling red that tastes like it should cost much, much more.
