Warwick Estate Sauvignon Blanc Stellenbosch Professor Black 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

The wine shows an abundance of tropical fruit, pear, grapefruit and lime aromas on the nose that carry through to the palette. The mouth feel is crisp, yet rich and fruity, and coats the pallet evenly. The well-balanced acid and lingering aftertaste will make you come back for more. Food recommendations: Fresh Oysters, goats cheese salad or grilled/steamed fresh-water fish.

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

Professor Black Sauvignon Blanc 2009 - Warwick: Professor Black Sauvignon Blanc 2009 - Weißwein von WarwickDer Wein duftet intensiv nach tropischen Fruchtaromen wie Pampelmuse, grünen Feigen aber auch nach Birnen. Im Gaumen ist er klar, dennoch vielschichtig und fruchtig. Die gut ausgewogene Säure und der lang anhaltende Nachgeschmack lassen die Aromen intensiver wiederkehren. Der Professor Black Sauvignon Blanc 2009 von Warwick passt sehr gut zu Meeresfrüchten, frischen Austern, Fischgerichten und warmem Ziegenkäsesalat.    Weingut:  Warwick EstateLand: SüdafrikaRegion: StellenboschRebsorte: 100% Sauvignon BlancInhalt: 0,75 lAlkoholgehalt: 13,5 Vol.%Restsüße: trockenEmpfohlene Serviertemperatur:  6 - 8°C Weißwein > Südafrika > Stellenbosch
