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. – Description from mriskic

  • Neil Ellis Sauvignon Blanc Sincerely 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Decent South African Sauv Blanc. Loads of white grapefuit, lemon peel, citrus and some minerality. Somewhat one dimensional but a nice change of pace from the more typical SB and a good QPR. Read More

  • Back at ya, Kim.Thank you for the excellent list.  The good news is that I live in a large metropolitan area.  So, it is possible that I might be able to find some of the labels that you have suggested. As it turns out, you caught me in a mistatement.  (I'm old.  I forget.)  I have had another South African wine, and it was a Pinotage from Neil ...

  • Neil Ellis Pinotage Stellenbosch 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Quite purple color. Not the prettiest nose--earthy, "leafy." Interesting on the palate. It's not terribly fruity--maybe a tad of cherry flavor--but there is a very "sweet" sensation around the edges of the tongue. No tannin to speak of at all. Smooth, very brief finish--a touch of bitterness, but that is gone in a millisecond. An easy wine... Read More

    Wine review by Mike Madaio


  • Neil Ellis Sauvignon Blanc Groenekloof Premium Range Neil Ellis-Sudafrika-Stellenbosch-Stellenbosch 2010

    Snoothrank:

    This is green fruited and lightly sweet smelling with a lovely, sweetly vegetal, cut grass undercurrent on the nose. A touch of CO2 helps add brightness on the palate and a little prickle on the tongue. This opens rather broadly on the palate with nice tension, but the fruit is a touch matte. Citrus fruits and cut grass notes on the long, bright... Read More

  • Neil Ellis Red Blend Stellenbosch the Left Bank 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Probably could have waited a year to pop this one, but surprisingly smooth; medium body; excellent value for the money. Read More
