Ellis Wines 'Sincerely' Cape of Good Hope Sauvignon Blanc 2020
Varietal: Sauvignon Blanc
SINCERELY is a label created by Neil Ellis to offer white wines of value blended from grape sources in the Western Cape of South Africa.
Ellis is one of the doyens of the South African wine industry. He has journeyed from pioneering négociant beginnings in the early 1980’s, seeking out parcels of interesting vines to make exceptional wines under his own name, to a well-established family enterprise with a local and international reputation for exceptional elegance and quality. Today the journey of Neil Ellis Wines is not only about Neil Ellis. After 40 years of making wine, the next stage of the journey has begun with Neil’s son, Warren, sharing responsibilities as winemaker and viticulturist in the pursuit of quality winemaking. Neil’s youngest son, Charl, heads the financial team while his daughter Margot fulfils the role of brand manager.
Dreaming to be a winemaker as a young boy, Warren Ellis started helping his dad in the winery at a young age. He holds both a BSc and MSc Agric in Viticulture and Oenology from the University of Stellenbosch. He joined the team in 2006 and recently travelled the European wine world doing research on cellar technology and viticulture. Warren currently fills the position as winemaker at Neil Ellis Wines with viticultural responsibilities.
