2016 Cabernet Franc, Warwick Estate, Stellenbosch, South Africa
Soft and elegant with smooth velvety tannins. The wine dances down the palate with a beautiful Umami character and striking notes of mulberry, ripe red berries and fennel bulb and subtle aromas of dried oregano.
With over 160 ha of prime Simonsberg terroir, Warwick has a track record of producing some of South Africa’s most acclaimed wines.Red Bordeaux varieties are at the centre of Warwick’s focus, embodied in iconic wines like the Trilogy, Three Cape Ladies Ladies and the Blue Lady, the estate also produces several highly-rated white wines such as the Professor Black and the White Lady. The “First Lady” range immortalises the legacy of Norma Ratcliffe - one of the Cape’s first female winemakers - who guided Warwick to acclaim since producing the estate’s first wine in 1984.
