Ernie Els CWG 2017

60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Shiraz, 10% Cinsault

Wine of Origin Stellenbosch

The grapes were hand-picked in the cool of early morning. Grape bunches were gently destalked and lightly crushed. On the sorting table, all excess stalks and rotten berries were carefully removed by hand. Fermentation took place in small 300 litre open top oak barrels with three weeks extended maturation. The wines were punched down manually five times per day ensuring maximum colour extraction from the skins. Each variety was separately vinified and blended after 18 months of maturation.

Offering you the best of the Helderberg – the cornerstone of Ernie Els Wines and the Louis Strydom vision.

Tasting Notes: Mouth-filling density, that covers every taste bud. Undeniably powerful and one for long ageing with balancing freshness. Towering, big and full-bodied with great fruit purity and refined oak integration.

Ready for drinking in 2030.

Winemaker: Louis Strydom
