The Warwick Professor Black is a classic white blend made from Sauvignon Blanc (65%) and Sémillon (35%) that entices with the characteristic nuances of blackcurrants, passion fruit and litchi. Citrus aromas, floral notes of white blossoms and a light minerality skilfully round off the complex spectrum of the white wine which matured in oak for ten to eleven months. The Warwick Professor Black owes its variety of aromas especially the Sauvignon Blanc, whilst the part of Sémillon ensures the good structure of the blend. The white wine is a wonderful wine for warm summer evenings on the terrace. Served with fish, chicken or veal in lemon sauce, the Warwick Professor Black is simply excellent. This cuvee can also be recommended with pasta or a platter with fresh seafood.

Warwick with great Wines

With its excellent wines, Warwick is considered to be one of the best boutique wineries in South Africa. Due to the rather small cultivation area, the winemakers can completely focus on taking care of the vines and the resulting wines. The high quality and the great taste of the Trilogy or a First Lady red wine, but also of the Estate wines impressively show that Warwick was entirely right with the way they chose.

Warwick – from Supplier to Winery

In 1964, Stan Ratcliffe had finally ended his pursuit for the best terroir at the Cape and purchased the land where Warwick stands today. He first started out as a pure grape supplier, planted Cabernet Sauvignon and the very high quality of the grapes was highly sought after by other estates. This wasn’t enough for his wife Norma Ratcliffe and she started to study the production of wine. If you already have such great grapes, than it just seemed logical to create your own Warwick wine from South Africa with them. In 1984, the time had come and the ‘La Femme Bleu’, the Blue Lady, was the first wine they had created themselves. Two years later, the Warwick Trilogy was produced, a gorgeous Bordeaux blend which is the flagship of the winery today. Norma Ratcliffe was therefore one of the first women in the Winelands of South Africa and is considered to be the ‘First Lady’ of the South African wine world.

Warwick with ecological Cultivation

At the Warwick yard, the team of Norma Ratcliffe focuses on ecological cultivation in order to get the best from the grapes. This is why only a very limited pest control is taken into consideration at the estate so that nature can take its course as much as possible. Besides the high quality of the grapes, another point that is very important to Warwick is the soil condition. Only a so-called living soil has enough nutrients to optimally provide the vines with what they need. A constantly rising earthworm population is a good indication for the constant and probably even rising quality of the wines from Warwick!
