Warwick Professor Black Pitch Black 2017
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.
Dark berries, wild strawberries, violets, and herbs fill the glass. The palate is rich and textured with fine grained tannins and a bright and piercing freshness delivered by the unwooded Cinsault component.
The finish is dark and broody with concentration and a lingering aftertaste. Ready to
enjoy now but will continue to develop well over the next decade.
Varietal: 39% Cabernet Sauvignon, 36% Cabernet Franc, 13% Cinsault, 10% Merlot, 1% Petit Verdot, 1% Malbec
