Neil Ellis Groenekloof Sauvignon Blanc 2016

This wine is produced from low-yielding bush vines on Neil Ellis’s property in the highly acclaimed Groenekloof ward in the Darling Hills on the West Coast.

Neil Ellis started using grapes from Darling in 1986 and became the first person to release a wine from this area with his Groenekloof Sauvignon Blanc in 1991, spearheading wine industry interest in the cool-climate possibilities of the area.


Tasting notes:

Pale straw with green hues. Bright aromatics, of fresh late summer fruits, lifted florals with subtle herbaceous overtones. Delicately detailed, the refined, poised palate is elegantly concentrated with sweet tropical fruits, lively balanced acidity, mineral notes and a fine texture, with a long flavoursome finish.

Serving suggestion:

A refreshing aperitif but also enjoy with fresh oysters, asparagus, artichokes, sushi, smoked salmon, prawns, calamari, grilled fish, chicken or pork with lemon.
