About this Item

Trilogy, 2005
6 (1 x 6) 750ml
Situated in the Stellenbosch region, with a history dating back to 1771, Warwick Wine Estate was purchased by a Commanding Officer of the Warwickshire regiment in 1902 and he renamed the farm Warwick as a tribute to his regiment. In 1964, Stan & Norma Ratcliffe started redeveloping the estate, through the planting of Bordeaux varieties with son, Mike Ratcliffe, eventually taking over the reins in 1999. He helped further propel the estate upwards and at the time of this vintage’s release they had ‘listings in 4 of the top 10 restaurants in the world’. In 2018 Warwick was acquired by Eileses Capital, a San Francisco investment firm.
The Trilogy, named for the three major varieties of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot, is their flagship blend.

Critics Ratings

'Flagship Bordeaux blend, recognised for well-tailored proportions. Cabernet-led 05 (4*) unusually insistent, dry tannins dominate fresh, dark berried tones. May soften with few years ageing. French oak, 70% new, 2 years. 59% Cabernet Sauvignon with 21/20 Cabernet Franc/Merlot.’ – Platter’s SA Wine Guide (2008)
