Neil Ellis The Left Bank 2014
|Region||South Africa, Western Cape|
Fermentation initiated in stainless tanks and underwent a series of pump-overs until dry. Further maceration before drawing off and light pressing. The wine spent 14 months in French oak barrels of which 10% was new. Balance in 2nd, 3rd & 4th fill barrels.
A chocolaty coating over a core of slightly jammy raspberry and cherry fruit flavors gives this an accessible, easy feel. Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz and Merlot. Drink now. 2,000 cases imported.
