Big Easy Cabernet Sauvignon

Big Easy Cabernet was sourced from the Helderberg region within Stellenbosch, with selected parcels from different coastal regions to complete the blend.

Rich ruby. Fragrant aromas of Herbs de Provence, wild rosemary, bay leaf, sorrel; leafy, savoury herbs mingle with fresh cassis, new spring plums, blackberries. Elegant oaking adds hints of ash, cedar and ground cinnamon to density of black fruit.

85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Cinsault. Rich fruited, with lovely intensity. Notes of graphite over nice dark brooding fruit. Attractive oak aromas, cedar, spice as well as ripe plum/dark fruit and an attractive warmth to the nose. There is an attractive herbaceousness, plus a hint of good reduction. Super youthful in appearance, almost purple edged colour. The aroma exudes a sense of quality. The palate follows, with quiet red fruit which is tangy and bright on the palate. As the wine opens the fruit and earthy notes integrate more. The wine is serious, but easy drinking with soft tannins and becomes quite juicy, yet refined. Wonderfully youthful, energetic, with a lingering graphite/lead pencil finish.

From the world-renowned Helderberg region of Stellenbosch comes an award-winning range of wines named after South African golf legend, Ernie Els, and skillfully crafted by winemaking legend, Louis Strydom.

Vinification details for Big Easy Cabernet Sauvignon

The grapes were hand-harvested in the cool of the early morning. On the sorting table, all excess stalks and inferior berries were removed. Fermentation took place in 7-ton open-top stainless steel tanks and the wines were pumped over or punched down manually 3 to 5 times per day, ensuring maximum colour extraction from the skins. Each variety is matured separately in oak barrels before final blending and eventual bottling.
