Engelbrecht Els Vineyards 2004 Proprietor's Red Blend 750mL WS91 Points- Wine Spectator
Released in 2007 the 2004 Proprietor’s Red Blend this vintage is a classic representation of the sophistication and elegance that South Africa, and more specifically Stellenbosch, can produce. This wine has already received an impressive 91 points from The Wine Spectator, and an outstanding rating from The John Platter Wine Guide, being the only red blend to be awarded 5 stars in the 2007 edition.
A collaboration between Rust en Vrede's Jean Engelbrecht and golf star Ernie Els, this blend is a balance of fruity, spicy Shiraz and earthy Bordeaux—a testament to the two styles the winemaking partners enjoy. On the nose are hints of mint and spice, and on the palate, heavy oak adds a woody element. Ample structure but still smooth."- Susan Kostrzewa
