Ernie Els Big Easy Red Blend 2020
By Christian Eedes, 6 September 2022
Golfer Ernie Els is known as the “Big Easy” on account of his fluid golf swing but the 2020 Red Blend from the cellar that bears his name is also aptly named as it’s made in accessible style without being facile.
A blend of 60% Shiraz, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Cinsault. 5% Grenache, 5% Mourvèdre and 5% Viognier, it was matured for 14 months in older oak. The nose shows red and black berries, some floral perfume, white pepper and spice while the palate is juicy and fresh with soft tannins. It’s luscious, flavourful and very more-ish. Price: R185 a bottle.
CE’s rating: 91/100.
