Product Notes

Ernie Els Big Easy Cabernet Sauvignon is a majestic blend of ripe cherries, plums, and olives, harmonised with notes of chocolate, tobacco, and cedarwood. Hailing from South Africa, this full-bodied red wine is replete with layers of intense flavour. Its deep ruby hue and velvety texture are a testament to its elegant structure and well-rounded tannins. Revered for its lingering finish, the wine seemingly imparts a sense of the versatile South African soils it is rooted in. Simultaneously robust and refined, it's a perfect accompaniment to a mature cheddar or a succulent beef roast.

Tasting Notes

Rich ruby. Fragrant aromas of Herbs de Provence, wild rosemary, bay leaf, sorrel; leafy, savoury herbs mingle with fresh cassis, new spring plums, blackberries. Elegant oaking adds hints of ash, cedar and ground cinnamon to density of black fruit. The palate is sappy and fine, proffering fresh red plums, blackcurrant, touch of cola and balsamic threaded with ripe, round tannins and a juicy core. Elegant yet structured, the firm tannins melt into a fresh and fruited finish. Offering great drinkability without sacrificing concentration.

About the Winery

Ernie Els

Ernie Els Wines is a striking wine estate nestled amidst the robust beauty of the Helderberg Mountain in Stellenbosch, South Africa. The winery is the cherished endeavour of acclaimed golfer Ernie Els, a sportsman whose passion for the delicate art of winemaking is as profound as his love for golf. His dream of owning a vineyard took flight in 1999, and today, the winery is a veritable testament to his commitment.

The winery prides itself in its sterling array of wines, with each distinctive in character, yet united by an elaborate symphony of flavours. The vineyard's unique terroir provides the perfect setting for the cultivation of a rich variety of grapes. This in turn, paves the way for the production of a range of wines that are as distinctive as they are exquisite. The meticulously crafted wines are the wholesome result of a dedicated and meticulous team.

On entering the impressive, terra-cotta building that houses the winery, your senses are immediately immersed in the aroma of ripe fruits, hinting at the masterful products within. The building embodies an elegant sophistication and an alluring charm, much like its owner's charismatic persona.

Visitors are treated to more than just a wine-tasting experience at Ernie Els Wines. The estate boasts a contemporary, yet cosy tasting room offering panoramic views of the luscious vineyards and towering mountain ranges. A fine-dining restaurant offering epicurean delights perfectly paired with the estate's award-winning wines, due-to the chef's flair for creating gastronomic masterpieces.

But what truly sets Ernie Els Wines apart from its competitors is the personal touch that the golfer has imparted to it. Every bottle of wine is a part of Els' journey from being an internationally respected sportsman to a celebrated vintner, offering wine enthusiasts not just a drink, but a slice of Els' passion and dedication.
