Tim Atkin – Winemaking Legend 2017
Neil Ellis Snr established his business in 1986, modelling his business on the ‘negociant’ concept, of choosing pockets of vineyards and buying in grapes from growers in ideal sites to make his wines. His business model is still the same today, but now he has his two sons and daughter having joined the company. His wines always express beautifully their vineyard mesoclimate, as well as the cultivar charcteristics. Purity and focus reign in all his wines, especially this one – deep, fresh, vibrant white pepper and red plums abound on both nose and flavour, and the deep core of elegant fruitiness is bound together by fine tannins and fresh acidity. Drink now with light meat dishes such as beef or chicken schnitzel & sauteed potatoes.
