Producer Note
Ernst & Gouws is a family owned business in the heart of Stellenbosch, South Africa.
Synonymous with producing quality South African wines which are rich in heritage,
tradition and driven by a profound passion for wine and family values. In 1975 a
dapper and enthusiastic Ernst travelled to Europe, under his father's instructions not to
return to South Africa until he had mastered the art of winemaking. During his voyage
of discovery to France and Germany he missed his childhood sweetheart, Gwenda
and invited her to visit. After falling madly in love they decided to marry there and then.
Forty years later, three children and many Gouws grandchildren later, Ernst and
Gwenda still run the family business alongside their three children, Ezanne, Ernst Jnr
and Inke.


Vineyard
Ernst subscribes to the French philosophy that the quality of the grape is inextricably
linked to the "terroir", so he travels to various regions throughout the Western Cape and
handpicks his grapes in the areas where they naturally grow at their very best.


Winemaking
The wine vinified in the traditional manner and was then matured for nine months in
second fill French oak barrels.


Tasting Note
A classic example of this uniquely South African red wine. Distinctively rich ruby in
colour, with bold aromatics of dark chocolate, stewed fruit, spice and hints of coffee.

endless finish.
