Proprietor’s Blend 2016, Ernie Els Wines

£27.20 per bottle

About this wine

The Ernie Els Proprietors Blend is once again impressive and serious in 2016. Medium to full-bodied, it is strewn with black fruits, exotic spice and chards of dark chocolate. Sweet spicy oak melts into a dense, powerfully-fruited and structured core. The Cabernet Sauvignon gives a cassis purity and salty edge, while the Shiraz component of the blend adds a meaty, savoury and spicy edge. The blend is rounded off by the remaining Bordeaux cultivars in a complexity explosion from start to finish. It is exquisitely textured and finely tuned, the 2016 will open up over the next 5 years and age for a decade or more.  A regal red from one of South Africa’s greatest ambassadors.
