Warwick Estate Red Bordeaux Blend Simonsberg-Stellenbosch Trilogy 2006

Member Review by Philip James:

Good acidity, with a lot of leather on nose. A very mineral wine, tempered by some cherry notes. Its South African, so dont forget the mint! Liked it overall.

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

Trilogy 2006 - Warwick Estate: Trilogy 2006 - Rotwein von Warwick EstateDer Warwick Estate Trilogy beeindruckt durch Aromen von reifen Früchten mit Anspielungen zu Schokolade und Mokka. Er duftet köstlich süß und anregend erdig. Reife Pflaumen-, Himbeer- und  Brombeernoten runden dies ab. Am Gaumen wirkt er seidig-weich mit Nuß- und Kaffeearomen. Ein Wein mit einem ausgesprochen großzügigen Spektrum, welches sich noch mehr entfalten kann, wenn der Wein rechtzeitig dekantiert wird. Eignet sich zu gegrilltem Kalbsfleisch, überbackenen Auberginen, rundet Schokoladendesserts ab.Weingut: Warwick EstateLand: SüdafrikaRegion: StellenboschRebsorten: 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 24% Cabernet Franc, 11% MerlotAlkoholgehalt: 14,5 Vol.%Säuregehalt: 6,1 g/lRestsüße: 2,5 g/lInhalt: 0,75 lLagerfähigkeit: 7 - 10 Jahre ab JahrgangEmpfohlene Serviertemperatur: 16 - 18°CFassreife: in Barriques (24 Monate) Rotwein > Südafrika > Stellenbosch
