Warwick Three Cape Ladies Stellenbosch, 2017

South Africa

Grape Variety

Cabernet Franc

A full-bodied wine which needs some time to soften, it is very concentrated. 2017 was a super quality vintage in Stellenbosch and has lots of potential. Three Cape Ladies was named after three generations of female personalities at Warwick. The 2017 is intense in colour with dark fruits, spices and mint aromas. A sour blackberry flavour, grainy texture and firm chewy finish add to the personality – a little austere right now, it should mellow with age. 2017 sees the return of Pinotage to the blend for the first time since 2014. It accounts for 22% of the final assemblage combined with 63% Cabernet Sauvignon and 12% Cabernet Franc. Each variety was vinified separately then matured in French oak barrels with 10% new for 27 months.
