WHAT'S COOKING? Our restaurant is still being renovated, but in the meantime, we have some delicious food and wine pairing dinners that you can make yourself to keep you going 🍷 Here, we have paired our Big Easy Red Blend 2017 with a Sichuan Pepper Beef Stir-fry 🍷πŸ₯’ The wine is a blend comprising mostly of Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon. Its spiciness and juicy black fruit flavours compliment the spiciness and umami flavours in the stir-fry beautifully. If you'd like the recipe, pop us an email at info@ernieelswines.com πŸ‘Œ #ernieelswines #excellenceineverybottle #nothingelsmatters #whatscooking #winewednesday #redwine #stellenbosch πŸ“· Photographer and Food Stylist: @nita.west
CABERNET SAUVIGNON The Cabernet Sauvignon varietal is one of the most widely-planted grape varieties in the world πŸ‡ It's a natural cross between Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc and is well known for its ageing potential and its bold flavours. We grow a few different clones of Cabernet Sauvignon on our property and the end result is a delightfully complex wine with good structure and rich flavours. We're still renovating, but in the meantime, you can order yourself a bottle from us directly 🍷 #ernieelswines #excellenceineverybottle #nothingelsmatters #wine #cabernetsauvignon #redwine #stellenbosch #helderberg #wineeducation #winelover #throwbacktoharvest

PROPRIETOR'S BLEND The weekend is nearly here and we're planning on pouring a glass of our award-winning Proprietor's Blend 🍷 The blend is a combination of Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot - with delicious flavours of dark fruits, spiciness and chocolate 🍫 You can order your own bottle directly from us at orders@ernieelswines.com #ernieelswines #excellenceineverybottle #nothingelsmatters #reopeningsoon #fridaywine #redwine #redblend #stellenbosch #helderberg πŸ“· @nita.west
MERLOT There's nothing better than sipping on a glass of our Merlot on this #winewednesday 🍷 It's a medium- to full-bodied wine with classic flavours of dark cherries, berries and chocolate. Aged for 14 months in French oak barrels, it has a delicate smokiness to it with hints of vanilla. The spiciness in the wine makes it a perfect match with a meaty or savoury dish so bring along a bottle to your next braai! πŸ™‚ You can buy our Merlot directly from us at orders@ernieelswines.com or even from your local Checkers grocery store. #ernieelswines #excellenceineverybottle #nothingelsmatters #merlot #stellenbosch #helderberg #sawine #capetown πŸ“· Lifestyle Blogger @blogitwithjody
BIG EASY RED This weekend, we'll be sipping on some of our Big Easy Red Blend wine; a 2017 blend mostly comprised of Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon 🍷 It has juicy black fruit flavours with an added spiciness stemming from the Shiraz. 14 months of oak ageing give this wine some depth and complexity and it therefore pairs wonderfully with most warm, wintery dishes. We'd pair it with a delicious spicy beef stir-fry. What would you pair it with? 🍷 #ernieelswines #excellenceineverybottle #nothingelsmatters #fridaywine #stellenbosch #helderberg πŸ“· @nita.west
_ Wine from South African golfer Ernie Els - known as β€šThe Big Easyβ€˜ due to his imposing stature along with his fluid swing rhythm. The 2016 is a blend dominated by Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon. Spicy note with cherry and chocolate nuances _______________________________________ #ernieelswines #southafricanwine #stellenbosch #ernieelswinery #timeforwine #redwine #shirazwine #winetasting #rotwein #winegeek #winepic #winelist #winestories #wineoftheday #terroir #winefascination #wineexperience #wineenthusiast #winelife #wineloversclub #wineloversunite #winedrinker #winefreak #winepassion #winery #winemaker #winespectrum #wineoclock #winelovers

MEET KELSEY Kelsey Shungking is our valued Protégé student from the @cape_winemakers_guild 🍷 The Cape Winemakers Guild membership includes 41 of the best winemakers in South Africa currently. Each Protégé is mentored by a different member of the Guild for a period of one year. We are very lucky to have her with us and even though we are teaching her, she's also teaching us - here, she is transferring wine from the barrel into the tank to start the blending process. We are looking forward to the finished product 🍷 #ernieelswines #excellenceineverybottle #nothingelsmatters #winewednesday #capewinemakersguild #lovewine #stellenbosch #stellenboschwineroute

"I have, through my travels worldwide, developed a passion for fine wine, for the Cape winelands, and in particular Stellenbosch, the noble heart of South African wine. This classic wine is both the culmination of a dream and a reflection of my personal style." Ernie Els. ⛳️ 🍷 Today's #WineWednesday Ernie Els Signature 2014 is a cold winters day dream, and perfect for today’s chilly weather. ❄️ β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€” #LaurasWorld #LaurasWine #Winefluential #MeridianWines #ErnieElsWines #ErnieEls
Attended another super tasting evening with Tom Mills the International Marketing Manager at Ernie Els wines. He explained the history of the relatively young wine estate and how it came into existence as a result of the legendary golfer’s love for wine, a passionate winemaker in Louis Strydom and brilliant wine growing conditions here in Stellenbosch South Africa. We also touched on future expansion plans currently underway. Traditionally the estate is known for powerhouse reds and we indulged in a range of those wines including, uncharacteristically, their Sauvignon and Chenin blanc. It was fascinating, yet not surprising, to taste the evolution of these full-bodied wines and how the accessibility of the wine style changed as one progressed through the range - from immediate β€˜Big Easy’ drinking to more tightly wound Proprietor’s varietals culminating in the envied Signature with immense cellaring potential. Definite standouts were: - Big Easy Cab Sauv β€˜17 - Proprietors Blend β€˜16 - Signature β€˜14 (pricey but when properly cellared will yield max enjoyment) #therealgregslist #ernieelswines #normangoodfellowsthreeanchorbay #SAwinetastings #greatsawines #bigeasycabsauv2017 #proprietorsblend2016 #ernieelssignature2014 #stellenboschwines #southafricanwines #ifnotwinenot #ernieelscabsauv2016

Louis has walked the long road with Ernie since the brands inception during 1999 and has been father to each and every wine produced. Close to two decades have passed and he has continued to distinguish himself as an exceptionally gifted winemaker, and now also heads up our operation as Managing Director. His understanding of the terroir, and performance levels of these vineyards have been a key ingredient to the success of his wines. . . . #winemaker #winemaking #winery #ernieelswines #eew #drivingcab #stellenbosch #stellenboschwines #helderbergwines #stellwineroute #swr #southafrica #instawine #winestagram #winegram #instawine #winemakersofig
