Ernie Els Wines Big Easy 2013, Western Cape, South Africa

Country: South Africa

Colour / Style: Red

Alternative selection for: Episode 2

As recommended by: Joe Fattorini

Professional golfer Ernie Els has impressed the wine world with his bold and thoughtful wines from South Africa. This one, named after his eponymous nickname, is a deep-upholstered massage chair of a wine; by turns relaxing, structured, fruity and surprising. Mostly peppery Shiraz, the smattering of other grapes makes it a versatile mid-week dinner party wine for interesting flavours.
