2016 Sommerliers Selection Award Winner - 4C Reds (Voluptous/Rich).

The distinctive Proprietors Blend is bold and invigorating from start to finish. This Bordeaux blend with the addition of Shiraz offers a balance of seamless structure and elegant generosity. Notes of sweet black and blueberry coulis dance on the nose, and with time, floral aromatics are coaxed from the glass. Medium to full bodied, the intense cherry-laced core finishes with a whiff of mint and dried provencal herbs.


60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Shiraz, 5% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc, 5% Petit Verdot, 5% Malbec. American and French oak is finely woven into the long finish, providing layers for further of aging potential over 10 years.

The Estate
As one of South Africa’s most recognizable faces in sport and a leading ambassador for the country, Ernie Els has shown what can be achieved through sheer hard work and a passion for excellence. His commitment, discipline and focus have led to exceptional golfing success, and these same key factors are now evident in his premium wines. It was in 1999 that the idea of Ernie Els Wines was first born, and in 2000, Ernie together with award-winning winemaker Louis Strydom created the maiden vintage, a ‘classic’ Bordeaux blend. The marketing synergy between Els’s ‘classic’ golf swing and the wine worked perfectly. From the outset, Ernie Els Wines focused on delivering a premium product that would hold its own amongst the world’s finest wines. Ernie’s dream of owning vineyards and a winery finally came true in 2004 when the Ernie Els winery was established on a beautiful 72 hectare property located within Stellenbosch’s infamous ‘Golden Triangle’ on the slopes of the Helderberg Mountain.
