Ernie Els Signature Red 2013

Bordeaux Blend | Stellenbosch,  South Africa
Signature is a ‘classic’ Bordeaux-style blend incorporating all five red varietals grown on the Ernie Els property, reflecting the diversity of the Stellenbosch terroir. 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.
