Ernie Els Proprietor's Cabernet Sauvignon is a perfect reflection of the phenomenal 2012 Stellenbosch vintage, a marriage of ripeness and elegance. The nose immediately dazzles with opulent cassis and red plums, while hints of mushroom, ripe fig and liquorice add complexity. The palate is braced by solid oak which not only offers fragrant spice but adds to a majestic, deep and finely tannic structure. The dense fruit is lifted by a fresh cranberry edge which runs through to a luxuriously long and silky finish. A spectacular, brooding wine that will benefit from long ageing.

Grown on the same Helderberg slopes as the Ernie Els estate Cabernet Sauvignon, this limited edition Proprietor's bottling 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 18 months in 80% new 300l French oak barrels.
