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

Amica, derived from the Latin Amicus, can be described as a gathering of friends, telling a story of companions who have come together around a table to partake in a good meal. Winemaking rules were broken for this barrel-fermented Sauvignon Blanc, which was made via wild fermentation and raised in old French oak. The results are a complex and textured expression of this flavourful and well-known grape. 

The source of the fruit is a single vineyard site from the Jonkershoek Valley in 
Stellenbosch. Expect scents of fruit blossoms supported by notes of honeysuckle, white nectarine and melon. The mouth feel is fresh with flinty minerality and lightly textured weight, with waxy notes contributing to a structured and lengthy finish. 

A smart pairing alongside green Thai curry or seared Ahi tuna.

Aromas of apples, grapefruit peel, acacia flowers and stones. Medium-bodied with tangy acidity and vivid fruit character. Textured and mineral with a flavourful finish. Sustainable.
