As a leading South African ambassador and one of the most recognisable faces in the world of sport, Ernie Els has long demonstrated a passion for excellence. His focus, discipline and commitment have led to extraordinary golf success, and these same qualities are evident in Ernie Els Wines. Through his many travels around the globe, Ernie has been exposed to and appreciated some of the world’s greatest wines and has decided to pursue this passion for fine wine with the creation of Ernie Els Wines. Ernie befittingly chose Stellenbosch, the noble heart of South African wine to base his operation.
Tasting Notes: the decadence on the nose reminds of milk chocolate melted over baked blueberries, Morello cherries and cream. It is full in body with chalky tannins, imbued by a rich texture and salty liquorice on the finish which delivers finesse and serious length. The palate is rather towering, deep and somewhat closed on release, it will drink well for a decade or more.
