Winemaker Notes

Ernie Els is known as "The Big Easy" due to his imposing height along with his fluid golf swing. This wine, made by cellar master Louis Strydom, reflects the same bold, balanced and winning nature.

Critical Acclaim

ST 88
International Wine Cellar

Good dark, bright red. Brooding, inky aromas of blackberry, licorice and herbs complemented by a suggestion of dried berries. Silky on entry, then firm and a bit youthfully stunted in the middle palate, with black fruit, herb and spice flavors complicated by a leathery nuance. Sound acidity gives this wine good lift, but I'd wait a year or two before pulling the cork.
