Warwick Old Bush Pinotage 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

This wine has a garnet colour with intense raspberry and minty chocolaty aromas. The sweet pallet and spicy undertones compliments the intense nose and ensures a lively but still complex wine.

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

Open over 2 hours. Blueberry and earth on the nose with notes of curry powder, medium body with soft tannin and balanced acid, bright cherry on the palate with notes of vanilla, dark chocolate, rubber, cedar and tar, building and long-lasting finish of blackberry, plums and tobacco.

Granatrot, komplexe Nase mit fruchtigen Aromen, dezente und gut eingebundene Holznoten. Am Gaumen dicht und ausgewogen, geprägt von vielen Aromen nach reifen Früchten und herrlicher Würzigkeit im Abgang. Ein sehr zugänglicher und toller Wein!
