Ernie has been one of South Africa's leading sportsmen for over a decade and has become an ambassador for our country. A scholar of life, he has taken to learning about wine like a fish to water.

Ernie Els 'Ernie Els' 2004: Einer der besten Rotweine vom Kap mit Weltklasse-Niveau! Ein außergewöhnlicher Blend aus fünf Bordeaux-Rebsorten mit deutlichem Cabernet-Anteil ist hier gelungen. Der lange lagerfähige Wein, zeigt sich voll von Aromen und Farben. Dunkle Beeren, Kräuteraromen lassen sich ebenso herausschmecken, wie eine ausgewogene Mischung aus grünem Pfeffer, Pflaumen und wilden Beeren und machen ihn zu einem eleganten Begleiter. "Dieser Wein ist die Erfüllung eines Traums und spiegelt meinen Stil. Durch meine Reisen in alle Bereiche der Welt entwickelte ich eine Passion für schöne Weine, darunter auch den Kapwein und im speziellen die Weine aus Stellenbosch, dem Herz der südafrikanischen Weinherstellung."

Terrific modern-style wine. Confidently rendered with blackberry, black currant and boysenberry fruit that oozes along the palate, while cocoa powder, Lapsang souchong tea, black fig and Kona coffee notes ripple through the finish. Still a bit tight,

A Bordeaux blend from Stellenbosch. Full of cassis and spice on the fruit with nuances of cedar from the oak aging. Quite aromatic and certainly a South African beauty that will age. Limited production.

Winemaker's Notes:

This has to be the finest vintage of the Proprietors Blend yet! A cool, concentrated ripening season resulted in an elegant yet resolute wine of great demeanor. The nose is finely tuned cassis, a touch of earth, graphite and meat spice. The silky structure is built like a sky-scraper, towering over a full-bodied, deeply textured palate. Cabernet Sauvignon and the other Bordeaux cultivars produce a classic feel, with 21% Shiraz adding a spicy, savoury complexity. The finish is once again extremely fine and elegant. Relish opening in 5 to 10 years to expose its full potential. Cabernet Sauvignon 62%, Shiraz 21%, Merlot 5%, Cabernet Franc 5%, Malbec 5%, Petit Verdot 2%
