Cabernet Sauvignon, Ernie Els
Ernie Els' Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards grow on the warm north-facing slopes of the Helderberg region within the Stellenbosch appellation.
A terrific follow up to the profound 2015, this shows a black core and crimson edge, offering a brightness to the densely ripe fruit. The decadence on the nose brings to mind milk chocolate melted over baked blueberries, Morello cherries and cream! It is full in body with chalky tannins, imbued by a rich texture and salty liquorice on the finish which delivers finesse and serious length.
