Warwick The Blue Lady Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

Warwick The Blue Lady Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

Beautiful purple colour, deep nose of dark berries, herbs, pencil shavings and cassis. Powerful tannins, signature to the 2018vintage give backbone and grip to the palate. The dark berries for the initial nose carry through onto the palate, with notes of oak and crème de cassis. The finish is long and dry with a powerful finish, this will reward cellaring over the next 7-10 years

Dry-aged coal-roasted fillet of beef, with creamy baked potatoes and salt-crusted sugar snap peas. Coal roasted whole cauliflower marinated in garlic butter and spiced with nutmeg and roasted pine nuts

Back in 1984, we called our single-vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon “La Femme Bleu”. At the time, it felt like a French name worked as a tribute to the region of Bordeaux. Of course, we now know that the coolest thing about this iconic wine is that it’s 100% African, and demonstrates to the world the true power of Stellenbosch terroir.

in the cellar : Three specific blocks were used to produce this wonderful Stellenbosch Cabernet Sauvignon. Hand-harvested, de-stemmed and sorted into tank. The wines spent up to 36 days on the skins depending on the tannin structure with three or four pump-overs per day and then pressed to undergo malolactic fermentation in barrel and tank. After completion, the wine was racked to French oak barrels (36% new oak, 39% second fill, 25% third fill) for a period of 24 months before a strict selection process, where only the best barrels were used. These barrels are blended into tank and filtered before bottling in October 2020.
