Big Easy Chenin Blanc, Ernie Els
Big Easy Chenin Blanc grapes were harvested from individually selected, low yielding vines from Stellenbosch, Durbanville and Perdeberg in the Western Cape.
The Big Easy Chenin is punchy and concentrated in the dry 2018 vintage. Ripe kumquat, summer melon, straw and hints of spice on the nose lead to a deep, fruity palate. It is crisp and fresh, but offers a soft and creamy mouthfeel. The fruit is ripe and easy-going, but the palate ends dry and savoury. The finish is long and nutty, maintaining notes of citrus throughout.
