Op sy Moer


Op Sy Moer translates as “sur lie” or “on the lees”. That means instead of going their separate ways, the wine and lees stay in touch for some light flirting. It’s a friendship with benefits. By keeping it on the lees, the wine is better preserved and less oxidation occurs. As the friendship matures, the lees add more richness and texture to the wine. Secondary aromas and flavours evolve, giving the wine even more complexity.

Neil Ellis Op sy Moer 2018

Youthful straw colour with a slight green tinge. Complex nose of citrus zest, pineapple and a slight nuttiness. Fresh, vibrant palate, with good texture and a long creamy finish. This is a wine that will keep evolving in the glass.
