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.

    Description

    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.

    Beginning opaque in the glass, the 2017 The Blue Lady Cabernet Sauvignon offers up a juicy red and black-fruited core of aromas; crème de cassis, cherry preserves, plum reduction and blackberry compote sing in unison with elegant oak tones. Full-bodied, this juicy and complex wine offers no hard edges across the mid-palate, while displaying a generous and juicy nature with lifting tannins and a subtle flavor of dried herbs. The finish is long, complex and evolving with flavours of black raspberry pie and mint chocolate. It’s delicious and food friendly.
