complex & elegant
Tasting Notes: Appearance :Bright, dark ruby. Aroma : The aroma of the wine is fruit driven with combination of red current, cassis and plum fruits. The fruit is supported by violets, black olives and hints of vanilla and spice. Palate : The fruit from the aroma follows through unto the delightful palate, supported by an soft mineral feel with hints of oak and backed by a seamless tannin structure. Impression : "This elegant wine offers great middle palate complexity with a long spicy finish."
Concept: Producing a wine made up of five Bordeaux varieties to reflect the unique diversity of the Stellenbosch terroir. This wine, made by cellarmaster Louis Strydom, is Ernie Els and Jean Engelbrecht's vision to produce an exceptional wine, reflecting their respective commitment to quality.
Climate: Mediterranean with the rainfall ± 650mm per annum, the EE vineyards are located high up on the northern slopes of the Helderberg Mountain. This contribution imparts warmer fruit flavours to the wine. In summer, the vineyards? close proximity to the Atlantic Ocean result in cool sea breezes that keeps temperatures lower, extending the ripening period.
Soil:The soils are deep red and are a mixture of weathered / decomposed granite and Hutton. A small percentage is made up of clay and Clovelly.
Vinification: The different clones of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Malbec and Petit Verdot are kept separate (micro-vinified) throughout vinification. Vinified in 300 litre French oak barrels for 20 months, the wine underwent bottle maturation for a further 18 months. This wine is made in a full robust style and has the potential to age.
