Tasting Notes: Appearance :Deep red with a bright rim.

Aroma : The wine is dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon which releases strong oak, cigar box and tobacco aromas. These are supported by hints of spice from the Shiraz. Full, juicy red fruits and floral aromas complete the bouquet. Palate :The wine is dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon which releases strong oak, cigar box and tobacco aromas. These are supported by hints of spice from the Shiraz. Full, juicy red fruits and floral aromas complete the bouquet.

Impression : "An accessible wine with a rich oak component that will benefit from further maturation, reaching its peak after 5 years"

Concept: A red wine created to celebrate the distinct palates of Ernie Els (Bordeaux style) and Jean Engelbrecht (Shiraz-based style) to crown their new venture. The 2003 Engelbrecht Els was first released at the opening of the Ernie Els Winery on December 15, 2004.

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. The 2004 Vintage started very dry and no rain was recorded in February. Fortunately the rain came in the beginning of March. This gave the vineyard the required boost to ripen the crop properly and also brought cooler weather.

Soil: Top formation is a Scully formation, containing components of Oak leaf and Clay. Deeper in the soil there is a considerable amount of granite.

Vinification: The different clones of Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Malbec and Petit Verdot were vinified seperately in open stainless steel fermenters. The combination of punch down and pump overs ensure maximum extraction of grape flavour and tannins. The wine was matured for 18 months in 300 liter oak barrels. 80 % of the barrels were new, and 80% were French oak and 20% were American White oak.
