Ernie Els Proprietor’s Blend 2012

The nose abounds with dark-blue fruits, a hint of bacon, espresso and fig jam. Classy oak notes and a touch of truffle further tussle 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 remaining Bordeaux varieties give finesse and depth.

About the Winery

Through his many travels around the globe, Ernie has been exposed to and appreciated some of the world’s greatest wines and in 1999 decided to pursue his developing passion for fine wine with the creation of Ernie Els Wines. Ernie fittingly chose Stellenbosch, the noble heart of South African wine, to base his operation.

Ernie’s life has mirrored a passion for excellence, which has been clearly reflected in his exceptional sporting achievements. His focus, discipline and commitment have been the foundation of his success, and these factors are evident in Ernie’s quest to produce premium wine.

With the help of award-winning winemaker Louis Strydom, they produced the maiden 2000 vintage of Ernie Els – a ‘classic’ Bordeaux blend. Since its launch, Ernie Els Wines has won plaudits and many prestigious awards around the world and the team continues to make a big impact on both the South African and international wine markets.
