Ernie Els Red Bordeaux Blend Stellenbosch 2000
The wine has developed well over the last eight months since it has been bottled. Integration of the tannins of the different varieties has progressed to such an extent that, though still young, the wine is very accessible and ready for release into the market place. The potential of the Els blend should not be underestimated. The delicate balance between ageing and accessibility must be closely followed, as this wine is made to age over a long period of time.
