Ernie Els Proprietor's Blend


Free Delivery with Orders over £75

2014 was a brilliant Stellenbosch vintage and the Ernie Els Proprietor’s Blend takes full advantage of the ripeness, freshness and hauntingly rich tannins offered by the conditions. The nose abounds with dark blue fruits, a hint of bacon, espresso and fig jam. Classy oak notes and a touch of truffle mesh with the amazing fruit purity. The palate shows beguiling inky-black cassis from the Cabernet Sauvignon, providing fleshy tannins, a rock-solid core palate and towering structure. The large Shiraz component adds a spicy complexity and exotic edge, whilst the sprinkle of remaining Bordeaux varieties gives finesse and depth. Roast beef and sugar-coated blueberries line the intense yet fleshy finish. This 2012 is the most backward vintage of this wine yet, it needs a few years to fully knit and it will age well for a decade of more.

The Ernie Els Proprietor’s Blend is a blend of all of the six red grape varieties cultivated on the property. These vineyards grow on the warm north-facing slopes of the Helderberg region within the Stellenbosch appellation. All six varieties thrive under these conditions and deliver rich, full-bodied red wines. It was aged for 18 months: 70% in 300 litre French oak barrels and 30% in 300 litre American oak barrels. 50% of the wood was new.
