Ernie Els Wines Big Easy White Western Cape 2019 (Chenin)
TASTING NOTES: Still young with a shy nose, hints of citrus peel, notes of preserved lemon, lime and rounded out with riper guava, quince and pretty white florals. While super fresh, there is a hint of crushed almond to add weight to an entry with gentle acidity that follows to an all-round softer acidity kicking on to a medium-long finish.
Wine of Origin: Western Cape
VINEYARD: Ernie Els Wines
GRAPES: 100% Chenin Blanc
AGEING: Post-fermentation lees contact was maintained for two months with weekly stirring of the lees before racking and stabilisation prior to bottling. This wine is crafted in a fresh style without any oak component.
PREPARATION: The Chenin Blanc grapes were harvested from individually-selected, low-yielding bush and trellised wines from the Perdeberg region nearby Paarl. The grapes were hand-harvested in the cool of early morning. On the sorting table, all excess stalks and inferior berries were carefully removed. After the grapes had been sorted, the grapes were destemmed and lightly crushed. The wine was settled overnight and the sediment was racked off the next day.
PAIRING: Pairs well with light and delicate dishes.
