About this Item

Estate, 2000
6 (1 x 6) 750ml
Established In 1999 as a joint venture partnership between world famous golfer, Ernie Els, and Jean Engelbrecht of Rust & Vrede. Els naturally chose Stellenbosch, South Africa's most storied wine region, to produce his wines and they brought on the award-winning Louis Strydom to oversee winemaking.

 
2000 was the first vintage of Ernie Els wines to be bottled, and established a powerful, new world style for this Helderberg property from the onset. This wine achieved a score of 93 points in the Wine Spectator, which was ground-breaking for the time.

Critics Ratings

'Ernie Els tees off with assured blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Petit Verdot & Malbec, radiating seriousness without exaggeration. 2000's aromatic mélange black berries, violets, plush oak spice still youthfully bold; taut minerally structure, insistent dry tannins beautifully contain fruit opulence and generous alc (14%).’ - Platter's SA Wine Guide 2003, 4*
