In 1984 Neil Ellis sourced grapes from vineyards not of his own and produced wine in rented cellar space. These grapes were sourced in the Stellenbosch district and meant a lot of nosing around the restrictive quota system prevalent at the time.
Today, the experience and knowledge of the past are applied to modern techniques and technologies for a new generation of winemaking. “Our vision remains to make distinctive, refined wines that are expressive of their terrain and rank amongst South Africa’s finest. A pursuit of quality, nothing less.”- Neil Ellis
The Whitehall Chardonnay celebrates the legacy of site-selected vineyards. The grapes for this premium Chardonnay grew just down the road from the Whitehall farm where Neil produced the first certified Sauvignon Blanc. The philosophy is to craft Chardonnay of great purity, reflecting site and the season in which it was grown.
Expect to find a pretty bouquet of zesty lime and crunchy white nectarines married with flinty minerality and hints of hazelnut. Finely structured on the palate, with bright acidity balancing the delicate fruit aromas bringing this wine into graceful harmony. This is a polished wine made from well-practiced hands, combining distinctive character, refined concentration and elegance.
Highly sippable on its own, but will match superbly with salmon, smoked duck, or shellfish.
