Product Overview

"The 2018 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."


--------THE PRODUCER--------

Ernie Els

Ernie Els is found in Stellenbosch and have some of the most complex and fruit-forward wines in the region. It was started by Louis Strydom in 2000 with the hope of wanting to make a 'classic Bordeaux blend' in South Africa. They now are also making incredible wines from Syrah.



--------THE GRAPE--------

Chenin Blanc is a versatile white grape varietal that is producing a wide range of white wines all around the world. Historically, and where it is planted most, is in the Loire Valley of northern France. Here it is famous in Anjou-Saumur particularly in Vouvray, where it is usually found as a sparkling or dry white wine.


--------THE REGION--------


Stellenbosch is the most well-known wine region in South Africa. It is home to many of the most famous estates and many of the top wines. Generally speaking it is a red wine hub with Pinotage, Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon at the helm, though more recently white wines are also staking a claim.
