Cape Winemakers Guild

Ernie Els Wines CWG 2019

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

The grapes are hand-picked in the cool of early morning. Whole berries are fermented in open-top tanks and barrels with intermittent pump-overs and punch-downs to ensure a balance between flavour, colour and tannin extraction from the skins. Ferments are meticulously monitored during fermentation to ensure that all the natural aromas and flavours are preserved and highlighted as required. Each variety is maturated separately (micro-vinified) in oak barrels before blending and eventual bottling.

Tasting Notes: Blend of the core Helderberg varieties, complex and fresh. Fragrant aromatics of purple violets, and Christmas spices follow to flavours of concentrated cassis and forest berries. Expressive and luxurious.

Ready for drinking 10 years from vintage.

Winemaker: Louis Strydom
