The Ernie Els Proprietor's Blend 2008 has a dark black core with glass-staining depth. It is bold and powerful, offering inviting notes of chocolate, herbs and drops of freshly brewed coffee. Cabernet Sauvignon offers the sturdy backbone with the Shiraz adding a savoury edge to the pure, sweetly fruited mid-palate. Spicy new oak checks the ripe, folding tannins, all balanced by excellent lift on the finish. Finely tuned and delicious now, it will cellar well for another 5 to 10 years.
Cabernet Sauvignon 60%, Shiraz 19%, Merlot 6%, Cabernet Franc 5%,
Malbec 5%, Petit Verdot 5%
"Dark and juicy, with a nice core of blackberry, black Mission fig and dark currant fruit woven deftly with mesquite, iron and black tea. A dark licorice edge hangs through the grippy finish. This has the length and poise for cellaring. Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2013."
"A blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 19% Shiraz and the rest Bordeaux varieties, the 2008 Proprietor’s Blend has a lifted nose of blackberry, cedar wood, raspberry coulis and tobacco. The palate is sweet and generous on the entry with good acidity, vibrant red-berried fruit with succulent cherry and wild strawberry towards the finish. Drink now-2018."
The Wine Advocate
"Menthol and anise add depth to the otherwise black fruit-dominant bouquet of this wine. Rich and full, the creamy texture is loaded with flavors of blackberry, licorice root and cigar box, all lingering long after swallow. Firm tannins, medium acidity and concentrated fruit all promise longevity: drink now - 2014."

A long history of growing grapes and making wine, but less of a history on exporting it, and even lesser on
the quality aspect.
At the turn of the century (1900, that is), a surplus of wine in South Africa created a hierarchy of cooperatives, the
