Ernie Els only wants to play: as a world-class golfer with Tiger Woods (which he could defeat), as a winemaker with oak wood. Lightness is his own. His light, elegant, almost “decelerated” and effortlessly appearing golf swing earned the US Open winner the nickname “The Big Easy”. Big Easy “is also the name of the delicious red cuvée Ernie produces on Africa’s southern tip. To give our everyday life a dash of lightness.
Take it easy – Let’s take time for the good things in life. Reach for the bottle, decelerate it and move it elegantly onto the table with effortless arm swing and then open it victoriously: let’s enjoy!
Powerful, complex & melting
Enticingly, Ernie Els “Big Easy” Red Blend 2016 smells of blueberries, blackberries, cassis, sour cherries, figs, caramel, vanilla biscuits and delicate spice notes. It reveals itself to the palate with a beautiful tannic structure and dark berries, some chocolate, mocha, tobacco and wood. Well structured, powerful, complex, melty, fleshy, velvety: a truly charming drinking pleasure. The finish is long and fruity. 93 BELViNi points!
