Ernie Els

Stellenbosch Cabernet Sauvignon 2009

A classic Cabernet blend nose of Cassis, black currant and lead pencil. Lovely on the medium weight palate - beautiful balance with chocolate, blackberry and mocha. Easy to drink with totally resolved velvety tannins. Easily the standard of a top classed growth Bordeaux without the longevity. Drinking beautifully now. A blend of 60%Cabernet Sauvignon; 25% Merlot; 5% Petit Verdot; 5% Malbec and 5% Cabernet Franc. I bought this at the cellar door in Stellenbosch back in 2012. I have never seen it available for sale in Australia. Always admired Ernie as a golfer and I must say this wine matches the “Big Easy” ability as a golfer. Winemaker: Louis Strydom. — 8 days ago

Prof Keldermeester Versameling Cinsault Pinot Noir

Where pinotage, the South African creation, is a cross breed of cinsault and Pinot noir- this is a wine blended of cinsault and Pinot from South Africa. And true to form, tastes like an elegant pinotage- red fruit, good acidity, smoke, banana leaf. — 17 hours ago

Stellenbosch Pinotage 2017

Smells and tastes like expensive winemaking aka the new french oak is rife but you wanna know‽ I don’t mind. It makes this Pinotage nummicious (industry lingo). It. Is. Friendly. And tasty. Let us parallel it to to my unabashed love for Taylor Swift. Is it designed for all to love? Sure. Does it have a hearty that wants the best behind it? Yes! A lot and it fucking rocks. Not sure of this wine’s politics. But.
I love it even though it clearly wants the masses to buy in. This is not eccentric or out of the box Pinotage but it is excellence.

Three Pines Jonkershoek Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Dense ruby. Need decanting for a couple of hours to show potential. Beautiful nose of dark-red fruits, a bit of mint, and a hint of pencil-shavings. Strangely, didn’t detect a lot of oak, despite being 70% new. Full bodied, medium-plus acidity, and gripping tannins. Powerful and elegant at the same time. Will probably get better with another 3-5 years of bottle age. Good value compared to Bordeaux. Will stock up some more. 92 — 9 days ago

So many #southafrican #southafricanwine even if they say they are a different varietal, seem like they have pinotage. — a day ago
