2013 PROPRIETOR’S BLEND, Ernie Els. Stellenbosch, SA

Bin:  2330

Alcohol percentage:  14.5%

Area:

The 72 hectare Ernie Els vineyard is on the northern slopes of the Helderburg mountain. Vines planted around 1999, a new state of the art winery completed in 2004 (well worth a visit – great for casual, good value lunches)

Grape variety:

60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Shiraz; the rest Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot; matured for 18 months in oak (80% new oak; 70% French, 30% American)

Producer:

Celebrities getting involved with wine is not often a recipe for success – rather an outlet for excessive ego. But winemaker Louis Styrdom is doing a great job here from vineyards high up on the northern slopes of the Helderberg mountain

Maturity potential:

2018-2028

Old Bridge rating:

This is a real step forward for Ernie Else wines. The oak and alcohol are much better controlled with a good balance of freshness and (already) a long finish. Not expensive, surprisingly, for the quality
