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.
It’s all about the apples and pears over here. Like the
grapes used in our First Lady Sauvignon Blanc, these Chardonnay berries are
picked at the coolest time of the day, and almost all fermented in stainless
steel. But unlike our Sauvignon Blanc, this little number is left on the lees
for 100 days to build up lovely texture on the palate. Then, as a cherry on top
(not literally), a small component is fermented in oak barrels and blended in
to add a touch of oak spice.
VARIETAL: 100% Chardonnay
