Ernie Els Big Easy Rose Cabernet Sauvignon 2020 review - WineUncorked: Wine Reviews and Tips

Ernie Els Stellenbosch wine range began in 1999 with a Bordeaux red blend and then later branched out into lighter styles under the Big Easy brand (named after this 6ft 3in tall golfer’s nickname and his fluid golf swing). This is the only Big Easy rosé so far with a slight sweetness with flavours of strawberry tart and bubblegum with a sherbet tang. Apple tartness balances out the flavours along with fresh bread chewiness. Quite a lot of flavour going on – this is not a subtle Provence-style rosé.
