About this Item

2005 Estate
1 (1 x 1) 1500ml

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.

All fruit was sourced from the Ernie Els Wines property, with vineyards that grow on the warm north-facing slopes of the Helderberg region within the Stellenbosch appellation. Each variety is separately managed to create unique and varied flavour profiles for this classic Bordeaux-style blend.

Critics Ratings

‘Concentrated and very polished, with layers of black Mission fig, currant confiture, maduro tobacco, black tea and mocha-infused toast all gliding over supersupple tannins. Very long and poised. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Malbec and Cabernet Franc.’ - James Molesworth, Wine Spectator, 94/100
