Warwick Estate Pinotage Simonsberg-Stellenbosch Old Bush Vines 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

The wine has a deep and intense garnet color. The nose shows ripe cassis and smoky flavors that fuses with almond and chocolate aromas. The palate is full round with ripe chewy tannins and flavors like coffee, cherry, cigar box and licorice. The balanced acid creates a firm finish that is complemented by luscious and lingering sweetness. Food recommendations: Oxtail, duck and mushroom risotto Alcohol 14.6%.

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
