Ernie Els Cabernet Sauvignon


The Cabernet Sauvignon from Ernie Els boasts an inky, blue black core and an explosive purple rim. Extravagant salty-liquorice notes appear on the nose, intertwined with a dash of pepper corn spice and lashes of blueberry fruit. The palate is medium to full-bodied with a firm acidity and supple yet lacy tannins. Elegantly modern with a somewhat towering structure, the wine finally finishes with sweet fruit, a touch of mint and deft yet spicy oak.

Grown on the same Helderberg slopes as the Ernie Els Merlot, this Cabernet Sauvignon also benefits from the gravelly and well draining Hutton Clovelly soil, the elevated altitude and the cooling influence of the Atlantic Ocean just 15 kilometres away. It was aged for 17 months in 20% new 300 litre French oak barrels.
