Ernie Els Big Easy Red 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

An alluring kaleidoscope of black fruits, Christmas cake, liquorice and cinnamon tempt your nose, leading to a dense and full-bodied palate. Abound with spice from the dominant Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon adds punchy tannins and a robust structure. Floral and savory notes from Mourvedre, Cinsaut and Vigonier all contribute to the exotic rhythm of the Big Easy. Finally rounded-off by the gentle, sweet-fruited finish from a dash of comforting Grenache.

61% Shiraz, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Grenache, 4% Cinsault, 4% Mourvedre, 4% Viognier Floral offering up both violets and honeysuckle along with a very immediate apricot note, with the lift of viognier coming through quite strongly and adding a nice accent to mineral and herb inflected, smoky, grilled meat and jammy black fruit aromas. Powerful and in a way quite fruity though neither sweet nor sticky in the mouth with solid underlying acids. This is a big wine but it remains transparent and lively in the mouth with layers of earthy black plummy and berry tinged fruit framed by a meaty, leathery aspect all supported by noticable but well judged oak spice and tannin. The finish is savory and a perhaps a touch rustic, though long with excellent persistence to the fruit and with the sweet note on the finale that a little viognier can add. This is really a lovely wine that should appeal to a wide audience. Great steak wine. 91pts

Leuchtendes Rot, Zeigt im Duft viel frische Beerenfrucht mit dunkler Schokolade und feinen Karamell- und Würznoten. Am Gaumen mit schönem, fruchtigem Auftakt, gut eingebundene Tannine und delikate Eichenholzaromen. Gut strukturiert mit Eleganz. Der Big Easy ist ein Wein der bereits in jungen Jahren viel Freude bereitet.
