Ernie Els Big Easy Red Magnum


As the name suggests the Ernie Els Big Easy Red is bold in flavour and yet easy in demeanor. Pure, ripe, purple and red fruits immediately leap out the glass in an array of complexity, amplified by hints of rose-petals and boiled sweets. Warm notes of milk chocolate and roasted coffee round off wonderful complexity and depth. The Syrah-dominated palate is juicy and succulent, with the Cabernet Sauvignon backbone providing an inky structure. A dash of Rhône varieties give a dried provençale-herb edge to the exquisitely balanced finish.

The Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Mourvèdre and Viognier were sourced from the Helderberg region, within the Stellenbosch appellation. The Cinsault was also obtained from various sites in Stellenbosch. Grenache was grown in both Wellington and Stellenbosch vineyards. Each grape variety was vinified and aged separately before blending and bottling. Overall, the Ernie Els Big Easy Red spent 14 months in wood – 80% in 300 litre French oak barrels and 20% in 300 litre American oak barrels.
