Neil Ellis Groenekloof Shiraz 2013

Ultimate braai master.

The Groenekloof Shiraz 2013 from Neil Ellis offers super quality relative to price. Grapes from dryland bush vines, the wine was matured for 17 months in a combination of new, second-fill and older French barrels. Approximate retail price: R100 a bottle.

It shows great typicity with notes of red and black fruit, slight reduction, spice and a touch of fynbos on the nose. The palate is medium bodied and balanced – good freshness and fine tannins, the finish nicely dry. The overall unfussiness of the wine is very much to its favour.

#WinemagRating: 88/100.
