Ernie has been one of South Africa's leading sportsmen for over a decade and has become an ambassador for our country. A scholar of life, he has taken to learning about wine like a fish to water.


WA 92 WS 91 Pts - According to Wine Advocate - The 2009 Proprietor’s Blend consists of 62% Cabernet Sauvignon, 21% Shiraz, 5% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc, 5% Malbec and 2% Petit Verdot, aged in French and American oak for 18 months (40% new). It shows tremendous focus and delineation on the nose with blackberry, cedar, graphite and fresh strawberry. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp, ripe tannins matched with vibrant acidity that lends this great vivacity and poise. The finish has good grip with dense tarry black fruit that coat the palate. Superb. Drink 2013-2020.


rding to Wine Spectator - A very winey, racy style, with taut tannins framing lively red and black currant fruit, fig paste and cherry sauce notes. Flashes of roasted cedar and herb fill in on the lengthy finish. Drink now through 2015. 2,300 cases made.


Winemakers Notes - This has to be the finest vintage of the Proprietor's Blend yet! A cool, concentrated ripening season resulted in an elegant yet resolute wine of great demeanor. The nose is finely tuned cassis, a touch of earth, graphite and meat spice. The silky structure is built like a sky-scraper, towering over a full-bodied, deeply textured palate. Cabernet Sauvignon and the other Bordeaux cultivars produce a classic feel, with 21% Shiraz adding a spicy, savoury complexity. The finish is once again extremely fine and elegant. Rated 90+
