Warwick Estate is a high-end South African winery in the Stellenbosch region of South Africa. The estate has a rich farming history dating back to 1771. Then a fruit farm, Warwick only emerged on the forefront of South Africa’s wine scene when Stan and Norma Ratcliffe bought the estate in 1964 and started developing the land with an extensive focus on the classic Bordeaux varieties: Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. Throughout the years, Warwick’s wines have won many awards, firmly establishing the brand as a South African icon.
Warwick Estate is perfectly situated for Cabernet Sauvignon. When Stan Ratcliffe and wife Norma first started making wine from the estate they realised the outstanding quality of Cabernet Sauvignon that the soil produced. The Blue Lady offers blackberries, crème de cassis with graphite and tobacco leaf on the nose. The palate has immense body with an opulent texture and a wealth of fruit. A great pairing for any rich red meat.
