Wine tasting notes

Hints of citrus peel and notes of preserved lemon and lime are rounded out with riper guava, quince and white florals. While super fresh, there is a hint of crushed almond to add weight with gentle acidity that follows to a medium-long finish.

Winery information

Ernie Els

The concept of Ernie Els Wines was born out of friendship between Ernie Els and Jean Engelbrecht back in 1999. The pair combined Jean’s knowledge of the world wine markets with Ernie’s impeccable worldwide acclaim and reputation, to full effect. Winemaker Louis Strydom often describes his Stellenbosch harvest as the one chance he gets every year to produce something truly memorable. With a raft of awards and ratings behind him, he has remained as consistent and focused as the estate’s namesake himself.

Vinification notes

The grapes were hand-picked in the cool of early morning. On the sorting table, all excess stalks and inferior berries were carefully removed before grape bunches were gently de-stemmed and lightly crushed. The wine was settled overnight and the sediment racked-off the following day. Post fermentation lees contact was maintained for two months with weekly stirring of the lees before racking and stabilisation prior to bottling. This wine is crafted in a fresh style without any oak contact.
