As a leading South African ambassador and one of the most recognizable 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 in 1999 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.
Ernie Els Big Easy
The Big Easy 2014 Shiraz-based blend is far more than a crowd-pleaser.
Offering a spicy, savoury richness, Cabernet Sauvignon adds structure while dashes of Grenache, Mourvedre and Cinsaut give a classy Sothern French feel.
The juicy nose and palate is further enhanced by gorgeously perfumed Viognier, adding an extra dimension of silky depth.
Plenty of kirsch, black and red fruits lead to pain grille notes and hints of Asian spice. Medium bodied and yet densely fruited, this charming wine finishes with macaroon nuts and sweet red cherries.
