The multi-facetted and elegant Cabernet Sauvignon Jonkershoek Valley from Neil Ellis is a pure grape variety red wine from the South African wine-growing region of Stellenbosch.
In the glass this wine shines in a rich cherry red with purple highlights. The multi-layered bouquet is carried by strong aromas of black currant, floral hints of violet, cedar wood and a hint of mint. Thanks to the ageing in oak barrels, the aromas of the nose are complemented on the palate by a fine oak spice. This South African red wine cannot hide its complexity behind its youthful charm. The fine tannins are very well woven into the dense body. With a pleasant, long finish closes this red wine.
Vinification of the Neil Ellis Cabernet Sauvignon Jonkershoek Valley
After the careful harvest of the Cabernet Sauvignon grapes in the Jonkershoek Valley, the grapes are brought to the Neil Ellis cellar. There the mash is fermented in stainless steel tanks. Once the fermentation process is complete, this red wine is aged for 20 months in French oak barriques, 75% of which are new wood.
