Bottle Description

Ernie Els is known as the 'Big Easy' for his smooth flowing golf-swing and you can understand why they have decided to use this moniker for this more accessible cuvée from the Engelbrecht Els vineyard.
A blend of Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache, Mourvèdre, Cinsaut and Viognier from in and around the Stellenbosch region. The 2017 Big Easy is arguably the most serious vintage yet. It is a shade darker with a black core, offering a brooding nose that takes time to unfold. Complexity is revealed with elegantly ripe black berry, liquorice, fine Chinese spice and smoked herbs. A majority of Shiraz (60%) cloaks the palate with fruit-laden tannins, covered in melted milk chocolate and morello cherries. 20% Cabernet Sauvignon adds a backbone of minerality and definition, while equal parts of Cinsaut, Mourvèdre, Grenache and Viognier (5% each) add a Mediterranean feel.
