A hint of almond flakes and sprinkle of spice adds texture and depth. A lively, spritely and juicy wine that builds and builds to its finish.
This wine, made by cellar master Louis Strydom, is Ernie Els' vision to produce excellence, reflecting their respective commitment to quality. The Big Easy Chenin Blanc offers an amazing array of tropical fruits, showing the complexity the Cape has to offer. This wine is crafted in an easy-drinking, unwooded style. Its big appeal is due to its flavors being so pleasant, refreshing and approachable.
The 2011 Big Easy (White) is pure Chenin Blanc fermented in stainless steel. It has a lovely nose of powdered chalk, dried apricot and grapefruit that might benefit from a little more delineation but has great intensity. The palate is medium-bodied with fine acidity, attractive resinous notes and touches of dried apricot and peach towards the "fluffy" finish.
