Warwick First Lady Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
Warwick Estate is a high-end South African winery in the Stellenbosch region of South Africa. The estate has a rich farming history dating back to 1771.
Then a fruit farm, Warwick only emerged on the forefront of South Africa’s wine scene when Stan and Norma Ratcliffe bought the estate in 1964 and started developing the land with an extensive focus on the classic Bordeaux varieties: Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon.
First Lady wines are in tribute to Norma Ratcliffe, who has been making wine on the Warwick Estate since the 1970’s and is considered the “First Lady” of the South African wine industry. Using fruit from some of our younger vines allows for a delicateness to pervade while still offering alluring length. The wine was aged for 18 months in French oak. Awarded 89 Points by Wine Enthusiast.
Deep dark fruits dominate with blackberry compote and black plum complimented with spicy aromatics of clove and cinnamon and a lovely hint of dried herb. A magnificent companionship of bitter and sweet, dark chilli chocolate.
Varietal - 100% Cabernet Sauvignon
