First Lady Sauvignon Blanc

First Lady Sauvignon Blanc – Passionfruit, lime, and green apple jump from the glass, followed by green fig and exotic fruits. The palate is smooth and textured with a mouthwatering acidity, ready to enjoy now but will benefit from aging over the next two to three years

The grapes are pressed and cool-fermented which helps to keep those juicy, fresh tropical fruit aromas. The end result is a zesty and refreshing wine with aromas of cut grass and passionfruit. 

Grapes are picked in the early hours of the morning and transported to the cellar. De-stemmed and crushed to strainers for skin contact between 2h and 6h depending on the acidity levels. After pressing the juice is transferred to stainless steel tanks for fermentation at cold temperatures to promote aromatics. After fermentation, the wine is kept on the lees for a short period of time to retain the beautiful aromatics, blended and bottled in June.

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. From 1771 till 1902, Warwick was known as the farm ‘De Goede Sukses’. After the Anglo Boer war ended in 1902, Colonel William Alexander Gordon, Commanding Officer of the Warwickshire regiment bought the historic farm. He renamed it ‘Warwick’ as a tribute to his regiment and the rest, as they say, is history. Stan Ratcliffe purchased Warwick on April 1st 1964 after an extensive search for the best ‘terroir’ in the Cape. Together with his wife Norma, they soon realized the potential of the extraordinary property and began planting Cabernet Sauvignon. The Cabernet Sauvignon vines produced high quality grapes, which were soon in demand from neighbouring wineries. Norma became more and more interested in the making of wine and began to study the subject. Soon a cellar was in place and Norma began producing her own handcrafted wines using the Warwick grapes. Warwick Estate has implemented an (environment friendly/biological) approach to produce top quality grapes each year. A few years ago the farm started to refrain from using pre-emergent herbicide in their vineyards.
