We want to share the love today by reminding you of the intensely purple and deep crimson red Signature blend, now six years old and the perfect spoil for a loved one! Happy Valentine's Day! . . . #valentinesday #valentine #14feb #lovewins #love #lovewine #redwine #signature #ernieels #ernieelswines #bigeasy #bigeasywines #winesofsa #wosa #winegram #instawine #winesofinstagram #instagram #stellenbosch #stellwineroute #swr #southafrica #stellenbosch360
The medium bodied 2015 Merlot is a reflection of a truly great vintage, exuding excellent ripeness along with freshness and poise. A fine wine and the perfect companion for a well thought through meal. . . . #ernieelswines #ernieels #bigeasywines #bigeasy #winery #wines #lovewine #redwine #merlot #drivingcab #helderberg #stellenbosch #stellenboschwines #stellenboschwineroute #stellwineroute #swr #winesofig #winesofinstagram #instagramwines #winegram #instagram #instagood #foodandwine #foodiesofsa #foodiesoftheworld #wosa #winesofsouthafrica #southafrica

Our quest to make world-class red wines doesn't stand in the way of making magnificent white wines. We have two glorious whites in our stable: Big Easy Chenin Blanc and the Ernie Els Sauvignon Blanc - both elegant, fresh and shimmering in 2017! . . . #winewednesday #wine #lovewine #whitewine #cheninblanc #sauvignonblanc #winesofstellenbosch #wosa #swr #stellwineroute #stellenbosch #helderberg #helderbergwines #eew #ernieels #ernieelswines #bigeasy #bigeasywines #winemaking #winery #southafrica

December amongst the Stellenbosch vineyards are one of the most magnificent sights you'll see all year. The vines are almost fully grown and the berries are starting to grow rapidly into fully grown, ready-to-harvest fruits. . . . #viticulture #vineyards #vines #winemaking #wine #lovewine #drivingcab #winery #winegram #instawine #stellenbosch #stellenboschwines #winesofstellenbosch #helderberg #helderbergwines #ernieelswines #bigeasywines #eew #winesofsouthafrica #winesofsa #wosa #stellenboschwineroute #swr

Louis Strydom often describes each harvest as the one chance he gets every year to produce something truly memorable. In the constant pursuit of producing a world-class South African wine, his attitude is unwavering and uncompromising when it comes to his standards for his wine. He will not settle for anything less than the best from the harvest he receives, and this commitment and passion is evident in his wines. . . . #mondaymotivation #winemaker #winemaking #wine #lovewine #winery #vineyards #viticulture #terroir #ernieelswines #bigeasywines #bigeasy #passion #redwine #drivingcab #tastewine #winetasting #stellenbosch #stellenboschwines #winesofsa #winesofsouthafrica #sawines #wosa #capewine #capewines #wineproducer
The moment when grapes are picked is probably one of the most important parts of the wine making process. If the grapes are picked earlier, the acidity will be higher. If the grapes are picked later, the acidity will be lower and the sweetness higher. All of this in an integral part of getting the desired flavour and aromas in a wine. . . . #wine #grapes #vineyards #viticulture #winegram #winemaking #stellenbosch #stellenboschwines #helderberg #helderbergwines #ig #instawine #ernieelswines #bigeasywines #bigeasy #lovewine . . . 📸 Regran_ed from @ernieelswines - #regrann

Spring time sunrise on the farm. Stellenbosch's mountains cover the vineyards in shade until about 7h45am at this time of the year, giving the mornings a cool and crisp freshness. . . . #sunrise #winery #vineyards #wine #lovewine #viticulture #winemaking #helderberg #stellenbosch #stellenboschmountains #mountains #helderbergmountains #stellenboschwines #stellenboschwineroute #winefarm #ernieelswines #bigeasywines #drivingcab #spring #springtime #instawine #ig #instagram #winegram #sunrise_pics

Leander Koekemoer, Ernie Els Wines Viticulturist and the winemaking team are commited to using our available water as efficiently as possible. “This region receives 90% of its annual rainfall in the winter months (April-Sept), when our demand is only 25%, whereas it receives only 10% of its annual rainfall in the summer months (Oct-March), when our demand is 75% of the total excisable water. For this reason, as much run-off water as possible needs to be stored in dams during winter for use in summer." We are grateful for the recent rains in the Cape, however, with record low average rainfalls over the last three years, it is imperative that we use water sustainably. . . . #winery #winemaking #terroir #viticulture #waterwise #capedrought #capewinelands #ernieelswines #bigeasywines #eew #vineyards #instavines #vines #capewines #ig #instawines #wosa
A terrific follow up to the profound 2015, this is a pure, regal and pedigreed Cabernet Sauvignon. It shows a black core and crimson edge, offering a brightness to the densely ripe fruit. The decadence on the nose reminds of milk chocolate melted over baked blue-berries, Morello cherries and cream! It is full in body with chalky tannins, imbued by a rich texture and salty liquorice on the finish which delivers finesse and serious length. . . . #wine #lovewine #redwine #cabernetsauvignon #winewednesday #drivingcab #cab #cabsauv #wednesdaywining #stellenbosch #stellenboschwines #capewines #capewinelands #winesofsouthafrica #wosa #southafrica #capewinemakers #winemaking #winery #eew #ernieelswines #bigeasy #bigeasywines #instawines #winegram #instagramsa #instawine #ig

A very appropriate throwback to Ernie's first US Open win in 1994 after the gruelling 18-hole play-off and sudden death rounds against Loren Roberts. It was Ernie's first major championship win and one he holds very close to his heart. The US Open 2018 takes place at Shinnecock Hills, New York. The last time this championship took place on this course, it was won by another South African, Retief Goosen, in 2004, just 10 years after Ernie's win. . . . #golf #usopen #majorgolf #usopenchampionship #usopengolf #ernieels #bigeasy #bigeasywines #tbt #throwback #tbthursday #throwbackthursday #champion #instagolf #instawine

There is more to the Big Easy Cabernet Sauvignon than meets the eye. Alluring cassis fruit and deep fragrance is matched with wonderful drinkability and deft balance. Medium bodied and sleek, notes of red cherry, salted liquorice and grilled beef slowly unfold from the glass. The addition of 15% Cinsaut adds a lightness and a delicate perfume to a softly textured, sweet-fruited palate. It is moderate in alcohol with a lovely freshness, an infusion of mixed berries line a juicy finish. . . . #drivingcab #cabernetsauvignon #ernieelswines #bigeasywines #bigeasy #winegram #instawine #lovewine #winewednesday #wednesdaywining #helderberg #stellenbosch #stellenboschwines #winesofsouthafrica #southafrica #instagramsa #instagram_sa #ig #instagood #instalike #instalove

Wine is simply fermented grape juice. The natural yeasts on the grape skins convert the sugar in the juice to alcohol. The basic chemistry is simple, but making fine, complex wines is far more involved and there are significant differences in how wines are made when different styles are the goal. . . . #wine #winemaking #vineyards #viticulture #winery #stellenbosch #helderberg #southafrica #stellenboschwines #drivingcab #bigeasywines #ernieelswines #instawine #winegram #winesofig #winesofinstagram #ig #instagood #instalove #instalike

"The artistry comes in the blending process.

Ernie has been one of South Africa's leading sportsmen for over a decade and has become an ambassador for our country. A scholar of life, he has taken to learning about wine like a fish to water.

As we anticipate the arrival of Spring, we take a look at one of our fine white wines from the Big Easy range. The 2017 Big Easy Chenin Blanc is loaded with ripe mandarin and lime on the nose, leading to notes of early spring jasmine and cling peaches. The tropical palate is richly textured with hints of wild herbs and Indian spice, adding complexity and good depth. It is medium-bodied and unhindered by oak giving a lively fruit structure and soft and easy finish. . . . #cheninblanc #whitewine #wine #bigeasychenin #2017vintage #winesofsouthafrica #stellenboschwines #capewinelands #stellenbosch #winelands #winegram #winesofinstagram #instawine #lovewine #drinkwine #winelovers #friday #southafrica #proudlysouthafrican #bigeasy #bigeasywines #instalike #instagood #insta #ig #igers #ig_today
