Big Easy Chenin Blanc

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.

Big Easy Chenin Blanc grapes were harvested from individually selected, low yielding vines from Stellenbosch, Durbanville and Perdeberg in the Western Cape.

There is an abundance of tropical fruit. Some honeysuckle blossoms, yellow stone fruit, peach and passionfruit. The bouquet is summery, with added fresh cut apple and some fynbos notes. The palate that follows is juicy with ripe melon, white peach, and fresh, bright acidity. Jam packed with fruit flavours and a citrus edge to the medium bodied lusciousness on the palate. The finish is persistent; rich fruited with an attractive youthful vibrancy.

Vinification Details

After the grapes had been sorted, the grapes were destemmed and lightly crushed. The wine was settled overnight and the sediment was racked off the next day. Post fermentation lees contact was maintained for two months with weekly stirring of the lees before racking and stabilisation prior to bottling. This wine is crafted in a fresh style without any oak component.

Green Credentials

Accredited Integrated Production of Wine (IPW) estate.

Our vines are planted on the slopes of the Helderberg Mountains, benefitting from high-potential soils and the ideal growing conditions for our favoured varieties. The slopes feature a granite mother material, high in clay content with mainly Tukulu and Oakleaf soil families. A large portion of the vineyard is devoted to Cabernet Sauvignon with dedicated blocks planted facing north and north-east to absorb as much sunlight as possible. This is the key to producing the fuller and fruitier wines of Ernie Els fame.
