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.
Many folk may not know that, in the 1970s, South Africa
produced world famous red blends comprised of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cinsault,
which combined the finesse of Cinsault with the power of Cab. The Pitch Black
blend is our #retro tribute to this Golden Age.
If there was a “renaissance man” wine in their range, this
would be it. It carries all the dark, brooding ripe fruit of classic
barrel-aged Stellenbosch Bordeaux, combined with a delightfully progressive
component of whole-bunch, tank-fermented C. The Cinsault adds a layer of clean,
bright, juicy berry fruit, over the otherwise quite weighty affair. Ready to
enjoy now but will continue to develop well over the next decade.
