Warwick Estate Three Cape Ladies
Cape Blends >30% Pinotage (if wine contains more Shiraz than Pinotage, please enter it in Class 18) () Barrel fermented/barrel matured/wooded (staves, chips or wood rice) 2022


2017 sees the exciting return of Pinotage to the blend for the first time since 2014. Each component was harvested separately, destemmed and sorted into tank. The wines spent between 14 and 30 days depending on the tannin structure with three or four pump overs per day and then pressed to undergo malolactic fermentation in tank. After completion the wine was racked to French oak barrels (10% new oak was used) for a period of 27 months before blending and a light filtration before bottling in August 2019.

Classic roast lamb or slow cooked oxtail.
