Ripe red fruit aromas give way to spicy pepper flavors, which compliment the full-bodied ripe tannins. This blend of 40% Pinotage, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Syrah brings the best of Pinotage to the classic French varieties and will age well for the next 15 years.
Serve with a spicy tomato stew made with sun-ripened tomatoes or a black mushroom risotto.
90 points The Wine Advocate
The 2012 Three Cape Ladies is a blend of 40% Pinotage, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Syrah that spends 18 months in French oak, 15% new. It has a ripe raspberry and mulberry-scented bouquet with touches of allspice and sous bois that unfold with time. The palate is medium-bodied with quite succulent, fleshy tannins that belie the structure underneath. There is a gentle but insistent grip on the finish with good length. This is one of Warwick Estate's more approachable current releases
