4 /5

South Africa does well with Bordeaux blends, the combination of Bordeaux grapes, but also has its own 'Cape Blend'. French grapes are combined with the 'own' pinotage to form a composition that is unique to the Cape - and that is also worth something. Three Cape Ladies is the example of such a Cape Blend, although - other than the name suggests - four instead of three 'ladies' are in play: cabernet-sauvignon, merlot, pinotage and syrah. Grapes that combine in a special and excellent way: suppleness of the merlot, freshness and structure of the cabernet, spicy sultry of the syrah and sweet fruit of the pinotage. It works great. No wonder this wine now accounts for one third of Warwick's sales, so we can speak of a true success number. This is also explained by its wonderfully smooth character. The grapes are harvested perfectly ripe and the tannins of the late matured cabernet are perfectly ripe. The wine is nicely rounded off by aging in French oak barrels - 30% new - for no less than two years. The result is a perfect harmony between strength and elegant fruit.

Grape variety : Cabernet sauvignon, merlot, pinotage and syrah ..

Color : Deep garnet red.

Fragrance : Nice spices and firmness, black olives, berries and cassis, finesse, blackberries, raspberries and blueberries, subtle wood accents.

Taste : Smooth and creamy, fresh and lively, soft fruity, ripe and pleasant, coffee, chocolate, nice continuation, sufficient firmness and good tannins.

Shelf life : Can now be drunk, but can improve for another four to seven years.

4 /5

Mit seinen unglaublich tollen Fruchtnoten begeistert der Warwick Three Cape Ladies vom ersten Augenblick an den Genießer. Aromen von roten Beeren und Erdbeeren mit einem Hauch von schwarzen Johannisbeeren verwöhnen den Gaumen. Nuancen von Zimt und Nelken sorgen für eine würzige Komponente. Die elegante Struktur und der langanhaltende Abgang machen das Cuvée aus Cabernet Sauvignon (41%), Cabernet Franc (31%) und Merlot (28%) zu einem unvergesslichen Geschmackserlebnis. Der Rotwein reifte 20 Monate in französischer Eiche und passt ganz ausgezeichnet zu Gerichten mit dunklem Fleisch in einer Rotweinsauce. Aber auch pur ist der Warwick Three Cape Ladies ein Genuss.

First impression of an intensive cherry red. A smell quite well. This Warwick Estate Three Cape Ladies had a pleasant taste of blackberries.
Warwick Estate Three Cape Ladies is just perfect for boar sausages.
I discovered it at a tasting event for wines.

I bought some bottles of Warwick Estate Three Cape Ladies 2007 through the internet.
Rather clear red. Aromas of cherries. It left a long taste.
