Ernie Els Big Easy White
Dominated by citrus in its youth, the nose offers complexity with peaches, strawberries and fresh cream. A sprinkle of spice and a slight peppery edge contrasts the soft, creamy mouth-feel, while nutty and mineral notes gather further complexity. Medium-bodied and stylish, the palate ends with a long and dry, discreetly fruity finish.
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.
Ernie Els Signature Bordeaux Blend 2012
This wine is rather closed at first; nuances of fig jam, cigar box and meat spice slowly arise from the glass, complemented by ripe red cherries and a hint of fine milk chocolate. The palate is supported by ultra-fine, layered tannins that are seemingly wrapped in mixed red berry fruits. Pure and elegant, the finish lingers with juicy cassis and a salty, mineral tail.
