Neil Ellis Amica 2017 Magnum in Gift Box

Neil Ellis Amica 2017 Magnum in Gift Box

Winemaking rules were broken to create a sophisticated style of South African Sauvignon Blanc. Made through wild fermentation and oaking in old French oak. Initial scents of white florals and fresh herbs, are supported by those of sweet stone fruits and honeysuckle, and completed by a flinty minerality. Juicy with mouth watering notes of nectarine, lime and lemongrass. A round and creamy mouth feel complemented by gentle minerality whilst the nervy acidity contributes to a youthful and vibrant finish. The 2017 Amica is a complex and textured expression of Sauvignon Blanc.
