Classic and powerful
Cabernet Sauvignon is the most famous red wine grape in the world and one of the most widely planted. Whilst Bordeaux in France may well be the home of this grape it is very adaptable and some of the world’s finest wines are produced from Cabernet Sauvignon, including South Africa. Rated as the best Cabernet Sauvignon in South Africa according to the 2018 International Wine and Spirits Competition (IWSC) in London, the 2016 Ernie Els Cabernet Sauvignon is grown on the warm north-facing slopes of the Helderberg region within the Stellenbosch appellation.
In the glass, the wine shows a black core and crimson edge, offering a brightness to the densely ripe fruit. The nose brings to mind milk chocolate melted over baked blueberries! It is full in body with chalky tannins, has a rich texture with a salty liquorice finish which delivers serious length (like Ernie’s drives!)
Steak, duck and ostrich.
