Warwick 'Three Cape Ladies'

Winemaking procedure: The grapes were picked in the early morning. Cold soaking took place for a few days after which the grapes were inoculated with yeast. The components were fermented in open top stainless steel tanks with daily pump overs. The wine underwent Malolactic fermentation in tank and was then transferred to new, 2nd and 3rd fill 225 L French oak barrels (30% new). Each component spent 20 months in barrel and will be blended and filtered just before bottling.

Winemaker’s comments:Each component of this Cape blend offers it’s own qualities. This vintage shows an explosion of fruit on the nose which is largely attributable to the Cabernet sauvignon and Pinotage components. The Syrah is soft and sweet. The Cabernet Sauvignon is the backbone of the blend. Spicy stewed fruit and spicy ripe tannins with an innate softness and long lingering aftertaste. This blend brings the best of Pinotage to the classic French varieties and will age well for the next 15 years.
