Warwick Professor Black Pitch Black 2020

Product information "Warwick Professor Black Pitch Black 2020"
The Warwick Professor Black Pitch Black sparkles in a dark purple red in the glass and already wraps every red wine fan around its finger with its inviting bouquet. Aromas of spices and dried herbs are surrounded by light undertones of cedar and cigar box. Full-bodied and soft, the blend of Cabernet Franc (39%), Cabernet Sauvignon (22%), Cinsault (13%), Merlot (10%), Petit Verdot (10%) and Malbec (6%) caresses the palate. A hint of blackcurrant is accompanied by spicy nuances such as anise, cedar and coffee. Fine tannins and a fresh acidity perfectly round off the taste experience of the Warwick Professor Black Pitch Black. All grape varieties of the blend, apart from the Cinsault, matured for eighteen months in French oak. Enjoy the Warwick Professor Black Pitch Black either pure or serve it with spicy dishes with beef.

Warwick Estate with premium wine from Stellenbosch

Situated on the northern border of the Stellenbosch wine region, along the slopes of the Simonsberg Mountain, Warwick Wine Estate has a long track record of producing some of South Africa’s finest and most acclaimed wines. Red varieties are at the centre of Warwick’s focus, embodied in iconic wines like Trilogy, The Blue Lady Cabernet Sauvignon and single varietal Cabernet Franc and the Cape Blend Three Cape Ladies. The estate also produces several highly-rated white wines such as The White Lady Chardonnay and Professor Black. The “First Lady” range immortalises the legacy of Norma Ratcliffe - one of the Cape’s first female winemakers - who guided Warwick to acclaim since producing the estate’s first wine in 1984.

Warwick Estate - a winery with tradition

The history of the winery dates back to 1771. Warwick owes its rise to an internationally renowned winery in particular to the Ratcliffe family. Norma Ratcliffe was one of the first women to work as a winemaker. She studied wine making and began to create wines from the excellent Cabernet Sauvignon vines. There followed not only great success for the Warwick wines. Norma Ratcliffe was also rewarded for her efforts and became the first woman to join the Cape Winemaker Guild. Meanwhile, the winery Warwick belongs to Charles Marston and Kishore Boperdikar. They want to further promote the international success of Warwick wines and expand wine production by purchasing neighbouring vineyards.

Experience Warwick Wine

The Warwick Winery is a member of the Biodiversity & Wine Initiative and environmental awareness is a top priority here. This partly natural environment can be enjoyed at a picnic with wine. Local plants and trees are planted here every year to preserve the fauna and flora. In addition to tastings of their award-winning range of wines, Warwick offers guests picnics in a tranquil, relaxed setting on the lawns or shaded by the trees of our forest courtyard. Warwick’s picnic menu revolves around fresh and seasonal ingredients, sourced locally from artisanal suppliers, including a variety of options for vegetarian and vegan visitors.
