About this Item

CIWG Auction Reserve, 1992
6 (1 x 6) 750ml
Neil Ellis pioneered the négotiant, or non-estate, concept of sourcing grapes from growers all over the Cape and producing wine from the early 70s and, today, has become a pillar and legend of the local industry. Neil’s vision has always been to ‘make distinctive, refined wines that are expressive of their terrain and rank amongst South Africa’s finest’ and, with more than three decades of Stellenbosch Cabernet Sauvignon production under his belt, there are not many who could do it any better.
The CIWG Auction Reserve 1992 was a barrel selection of the finest from the already highly-rated 1992 vintage. At the time, the regular Cabernet Sauvignon received an accomplished 4-star rating in Wine Magazine. It is fully mature, savoury and earthy with a fresh acidity and red berry fruits.
