    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.  The Ernie Els Cabernet Sauvignon is grown on the warm north-facing slopes of the Helderberg region within the Stellenbosch appellation.  A pure, regal and pedigreed Cabernet Sauvignon.

    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!)

    Wine Style Meter

     

    Our ongoing quest at Winecroft is to do away with winespeak so we can talk clearly about the wine. One of the ways we achieve this is by using our Wine Style Meter, a key tool to match you with new wines we believe that you’ll love. We do this by matching the style of each wine on our list to your personal taste profile, which is established with the science-based Winecroft taste test and will evolve as you taste new wines.

    The needle on the Wine Style Meter points you towards the following wines:

    Once you settle the needle on the style of wine you like, our Wine Style Meter is a quick, clear and simple way of gauging whether you’ll like a particular wine from our wonderful winelist.
