Product Notes

The Warwick Estate Trilogy is a collection of three extraordinary red wines, each made with premium grapes from the Stellenbosch region of South Africa. The trilogy includes Warwick’s iconic flagship wine, the Cabernet Sauvignon, which is a rich and complex blend of blackcurrant, cassis, and chocolate notes. The second wine in the trilogy is the Trilogy Blend, which is a unique blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Merlot. It is elegant and smooth with notes of blackberry, vanilla, and oak spices. The final wine in the trilogy is the Three Cape Ladies Blend, which is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Pinotage. It is an intense and fruity wine with flavors of dark berries and spices. Together, the Warwick Estate Trilogy represents the best of Stellenbosch and is a must-try for any wine lover.

Tasting Notes

Complex bouquet of fruit with red plum and blackberries dominant with further notes of black cherry and mulberry. Aniseed and notes of dried oregano add even more intrigue to the wine. It Is well supported by grippy powdery tannins which lead to a lingering fruity finish.

About the Winery

Warwick Estate

In 1771, the Warwick Estate was established in the great wine region of Stellenbosch in South Africa. However, the estate came to be known internationally for its winemaking potential only during 1964. During this time Stan and Norma Radcliffe purchased the estate and started planting international and Bordeaux-style of vines here, such as, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon.

Over the next years, Norma Radcliffe shot up to prominence in the winemaking scene in South Africa. She was recognised as one of the most talented female winemakers in the Cape Town region. Even today, the estate releases a range of wines in her honour, known as the First Lady Range. Planting of vines was done in 1984 and the grapes are currently grown in two vineyards, such as the following:

Warwick Estate

The vines are planted here at altitudes ranging from 220m to 340m above sea level. They are known for their Oakleaf and Tukulu soil types. The climatic conditions, soil qualities and the natural location of this place make it ideal for growing varietals like Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Pinotage and Chardonnay. These vineyards comprise an area of 40 hectares. 

Uitkyk Estate

Located on 80 hectares, this wine estate has vines planted at altitudes ranging from 200m to 380m above sea level. With its unique Oakleaf soil quality, this estate is blessed with naturally-rich conditions to favour varietals like Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Franc and Pinotage.

These vineyards are planted on the Simonsberg Mountain Range slopes, which gives the vines good exposure to cool breezes during spring and summer. Many plots have been identified here with unique soil types, that make it ideal for growing different varietals within the same territory. The vineyards located towards the south and southwestern slopes of the Simonsberg Mountains produce some of South Africa’s best Cabernet Franc grapes.
