Warwick Estate Cabernet Sauvignon the First Lady Cabernet Sauvignon South Africa 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Dichte purpurrote Farbe. Die Nase wird geprägt von Aromen nach Brombeerkompott, feinen Tabaknoten, gefolgt von schwarzer Schokolade und feinen Zimtnoten. Geschmeidige, reife und abgerundete Tannine geben diesem Weine eine sehr zugängliche Art unterstrichen von viel Fülle und Komplexität

Warwick wine estate was known as the farm ‘Good Success’ from 1791 until 1902. After the Anglo Boer war, Colonel Alexander Gordon from Warwickshire regiment bought the farm and renamed it ‘Warwick’ as a tribute to his regiment. In 1964 the farm was purchased by Stan & Norma Ratcliffe, at the time there was not a single vine on the farm. However, Stan and Norma Ratcliffe soon realized the potential of the terroir and began planting Cabernet Sauvignon. The Cabernet Sauvignon vines gave high quality grapes, which were soon in demand from wholesalers and other wineries. Norma became more and more interested in the making of wine and began to study the subject. Soon a cellar was in place and in 1984 the first Warwick vintage was released (a Cabernet Sauvignon). It seemed Norma had the talent for making great wines and production soon increased. The Trilogy, since 1986, a Bordeaux style blend soon became one of the flagships of the South African Wine Industry. The farm today is still very much a family affair. In 2001, Mike Ratcliffe, Stan and Norma’s son assumed the role of Managing Director. He graduated from Adelaide University with a wine marketing degree. Read less
