Big Easy Cabernet Sauvignon, Ernie Els
Big Easy Cabernet was sourced from the Helderberg region within Stellenbosch, with selected parcels from different coastal regions to complete the blend.
Medium bodied with a crimson core and purple edge. Elegant red fruits on the nose lead to a serious palate with gritty tannins. Notes of wet earth and tobacco blend with creamy oak, sweet spice and milk chocolate, while ripe plums and Morello cherries line the palate through to a soft, almost tropical, finish. The rich 2017 tannins will integrate over the next few years as the wine gathers more complexity.
