  • Description

The 2011 Ernie Els Proprietor’s Blend exhibits an inky deep, black cherry hue and purple rim. Deep, exotic notes on the nose, whiffs of spear mint and flakes of dark chocolate compliment a melange of dense blue berry fruits. The strong Cabernet Sauvignon influence adds a salty liquorice attack following to cassis, grilled herbs and meaty edge from the dollop of Shiraz. Though full-bodied and rich, the mid-palate is fine and lively, leading to a polished, pure velvety, sweet-fruited finish.

Vintage 2011, Country South Africa, Region Stellenbosch, Winery Ernie Els, ABV 14.5

Tasting notes

The serious tannins seem gently balanced, offering ample support for 5 - 10 years cellaring.

All six varieties thrive under these conditions and deliver rich, full-bodied red wines. With an altitude of approximately 250 metres above sea level and the cooling influence of the Atlantic Ocean just 15 kilometres away.
