Case of Neil Ellis Jonkershoek Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
In an effort to identify the best possible site for Cabernet Sauvignon, the Jonkershoek Cabernet Sauvignon is the top-performing Cabernet Sauvignon from Stellenbosch. The small, distinctive sites are enclosed in the valley of Jonkershoek where the south facing slopes are significantly cooler than the surrounding area of Stellenbosch.
Intense dark colour. A pretty subtle, intriguing and appetizing nose with blue and blackberries and typical cedar aromas from the Jonkershoek Valley. The palate is nervous and fresh, followed by a well defined tannin structure. This is a wine built to last and early drinking would benefit with decanting.
Venison and ribeye on the bon
This flagship wine has won gold medals at the Decanter awards, the International Wine Challenge (IWC), Double Golds at Veritas Awards and one of the most outstanding reviews on winemag.co.za. It stands for a balance between elegance and power.
