"The nose is very perfumed with hints of peppermint infusing the black plum and black cherry fruit, with white fennel revealed by continued aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin. There is a pleasing sense of purity here and their decision to up the percentage of Pinotage was an astute one, lending this a rounded, very supple and harmonious finish that just slips down the throat. This is recommended." Neal Martin
Warwick Estate has implemented an environmentally friendly approach to produce top quality grapes, refraining from using pre-emergent herbicides in our vineyards. We spray once annually under each vine row and mow twice a year.
