Tasting Notes
Brightly tinted with a purple edge, the Ernie Els Big Easy glistens in the glass from the superlative 2009 vintage. There is a vivd display of complexity with layered cinnamon, fynbos, liquorice and sappy red berry fruit. The strong Shiraz and Grenache component adds spiciness in amongst the melange of varieties which include a splash of perfumed Viognier. There is excellent balance between the crystalline acidity and a creamy textured finish.
Ageing Potential
Exotic and energetic now, it will improve with half a decade in the cellar.
