Major Series Cabernet Sauvignon 2017, Ernie Els Wines

South Africa / Stellenbosch

Andy's Tasting Notes

Wonderful concentration yet so fresh and supremely well balanced. This is a classic example of how far the improvement in South African Cabernet Sauvignon has come.  Improved viticulture, hands-off management in the wine cellar, and the open minded, well traveled,  experience of the next generation of winemakers in this country are now producing exceptionally well priced and classy examples of this grape variety.

95 points, Decanter Magazine Top 20 Cape Cabernet Sauvignon’s (September 2020)

Through his many travels around the globe Ernie Els has been exposed to and appreciated some of the world’s greatest wines, a developing interest which inevitably led in one direction; in 1999 the concept of Ernie Els Wines was born. As one of South Africa’s leading ambassadors and most recognizable of faces in the world of sport, it was fitting that Ernie should choose Stellenbosch to produce his wines, with vineyards located high up on the northern slopes of the Helderberg Mountain.
