NEIL ELLIS GROENEKLOOF SYRAH
Groenekloof is situated near Darling on the West Coast and consist of a series of hills running parallel to the ocean. Sourced from low yielding bush vines on with no supplementary irrigation. The soils consist of decomposed granite and clay allowing for good physical properties like water retention.
Handpicked, crushed and fermented on skins in open top fermenters allowing punch downs and gentle pump-overs to extract colour, flavour and tannin. Malolactic fermentation in French oak puncheons.
A medium-bodied shiraz with a vibrant colour. The nose has bright dark fruit with contributing spicy perfumed aromas. Pronounced dark berry aromas with peppery notes lingering in the background while the palate is soft fleshy and round with fine, elegant tannins.
