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

If you have one of these lying around in your collection, it would be a good time to open her up. Soft in its youth, but ages with grace for up to 10 years. Now 5 years old, it would be a goodie. . . . #wine #lovewine #redwine #winewednesday #winewisdom #winetasting #drivingcab #cabsauv #cabernet #cabernetsauvignon #stellenbosch #stellenboschwines #winesofstellenbosch #winesofsouthafrica #wosa #swr #stellwineroute #winemaking #winery #viticulture #vines #vineyards #instawine #winesofinstagram #winegram

2015 was a profound year for Ernie Els Wines, but for our Ernie Els Cabernet Sauvignon, 2016 is even better. Rated as the best Cabernet Sauvignon in South Africa at the International Wine and Spirits Competition (@theiwsc ), you can't go wrong with this superb red. . . . #wine #redwine #drivingcab #cabernetsauvignon #cabsauv #ernieelswines #ernieels #winery #eew #stellenboschwines #stellwineroute #swr #instawine #iwsc #theiwsc #vintage #2015vintage #winegram #winesofig #winesofinstagram #southafrica #wosa

Ernie Els Wines focuses on producing premium Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet based blends and this is the “Golden Thread” that runs through the portfolio. The Signature and Proprietor’s wines are the pinnacle of the winemaking efforts and are all terroir driven and the result of specific barrel selection of grapes grown on the estate. Have you tasted any of our great red wines? . . . #drivingcab #wine #lovewine #winegram #instawine #winesofinsta #winesofinstagram #winesofsouthafrica #winesofstellenbosch #wosa #signature #redwine #redblend #winery #winemaking #winemaker #ig #instagood #thursday #taste #tastewine #winetasting #stellenbosch
So this cool thing happened, my brother’s first book has been published and it came in the mail yesterday! He is such a brilliant and humble person. I cannot wait to read it and now it is here! My brother Rob moved up to Alaska in 1989 to help with the clean up from the #Exxon Valdez oil spill and never really left. He is a committed lover of the environment. He has written this book from the stories of his life there. If you fancy some great reading, I recommend it highly 😊. Also, he has almost no social media presence aside from FB where he never goes. I think it took great effort from his publisher to even get him to post about this book. So, I share it, too! You can find it on Amazon and in NL on Bol.com. 🤗 #robmccue #environment #alaska #adventure #drivingcab #taxistories #history #ushistory

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

If you're lucky enough to be in possession of one of these 2012 Ernie Els Wines Signature bottles, take the leap and open it up. It shows an intensely purple rim and deep crimson core, leading to impressive concentration and startling depth. Rather closed at first, nuances of fig jam, cigar box and meat spice slowly arise from the glass, complemented by ripe red cherries and a hint of fine milk chocolate. The palate is supported by ultra-fine, layered tannins that are seemingly wrapped in mixed red berry fruits. Pure and elegant, the finish lingers with juicy cassis and a salty, mineral tail. . . . #wine #lovewine #redwine #winelover #winery #stellenboschwine #capewines #signaturewine #signature #bigeasy #ernieelswines #throwback #throwbackthursday #tbt #tb #instawine #winegram #winegrams #winetasting #winegrammer #winesofstellenbosch #helderbergwines #drivingcab

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

Cabernet Sauvignon, the most widely planted red wine variety in South Africa, requires the perfect terroir, plenty of sun but with moderate temperatures and well-drained, weathered shale and granite soils. Stellenbosch ticks all of these boxes. Cabernet Sauvignon is the last variety to ripen in the season and is exposed to all the trials and tribulations of the vintage, so it needs the perfect terroir to perform at the highest level. . . . #cabsauv #cabernetsauvignon #cabernet #drivingcab #terroir #viticulture #wine #winemaking #winery #winesofsa #winesofsouthafrica #winesofstellenbosch #stellenbosch #stellenboschwine #stellenboschwineroute #wosa #capewinelands #instawine #winegram #winemakers
Content winemaker and MD, Louis Strydom, punching down freshly harvested berries during the 2015 season, which turned out to be one of best vintages to date, despite the decreasing average rain falls in the couple of years leading up to this one. 2015 also saw record-low winter rainfalls, which set in place devastating drought conditions. . . . #wine #winemaker #winemaking #winery #harvest #berries #redwine #instawine #winegram #wosa #winesofsa #winesofstellenbosch #stellenbosch #helderberg #drivingcab #drought #capedrought #capewinelands #lovewine #tbt #throwback #throwbackthursday
