Story: Warwick Estate is a family-owned and run winery. Managing Director Michael Ratcliffe is the 3rd generation family member to oversee this high quality boutique operation that has been lauded globally for excellence and consistency. From 1771 till 1902, Warwick Wine Farm was known as the farm ‘De Goede Sukses’. After the Anglo Boer war in 1902, Colonel William Alexander Gordon, Commanding Officer of the Warwickshire regiment decided against returning to England and bought the farm. He renamed it ‘Warwick’ as a tribute to his regiment and the rest, as they say, is history. Warwick was purchased on April 1st 1964 by Stan Ratcliffe after an extensive search for the best ‘terroir’ in the Cape.
Producer: Micheal Ratcliffe
Grape: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Pinotage
Area: Stellenbosch, South Africa
Maturation: 32 months new and old French oak
Tasting Note: Prune and berry aromas but also chocolate and cassis on the nose. The Pinotage is soft and sweet while the Merlot has a subtle spiciness. Cabernet Sauvignon brings great finesse of tannin to the blend. It will benefit from bottle maturation.
