Situated in the foothills of Stellenbosch's iconic
Simonsberg Mountain, Warwick's terroir offers the perfect confluence of
elements to grow grapes of consistently outstanding quality. In the cellar,
careful vinification yields fine wines with true varietal character and honest
expression of their origin. We deeply cherish what nature has provided, and are
committed to protecting and nurturing our land for generations to come, we
dedicate our time and passion to ensuring quality in every facet of our craft. Each
wine in the collection tells a small part of the Warwick story.
Their original First Lady, Norma Ratcliffe was (literally)

Winemaker JD Pretorius performs a bit of magic with this
famous Cabernet. All grapes are tank-fermented, allowing the vibrant, rich,
ripe blackcurrant and plum fruit to sit front-and-centre. He then ages
everything in very old oak for 18 months, which gives the wine time to
integrate, but also ensures that nothing obscures that fresh profile of black
fruit, berry compote, dark chocolate, and dried herbs.
