About this Item

2011 Cabernet Franc
6 (1 x 6) 750ml

Situated in the foothills of Stellenbosch's iconic Simonsberg Mountain and with a history dating back to 1771, Warwick Wine Estate was purchased in 1902 by a Commanding Officer of the Warwickshire regiment. He renamed the farm Warwick as a tribute to his regime. Warwick's terroir offers the perfect confluence of elements to grow grapes of consistently outstanding quality. In the cellar, careful vinification yields fine wines with true varietal character and an honest expression of their origin. Warwick deeply cherishes what nature has provided and is committed to protecting and nurturing the land for generations to come. They dedicate time and passion to ensuring quality in every facet of their craft.

Critics Ratings

Matriarch Norma Ratcliffe’s signature grape flying high, showing suppleness, complexity and generosity, plus restraint and the promise of development. 2011’s leaf-seamed youngberry fruit, massaged tannins and precise oaking (45% new oak) still helps set the bar for the variety.’ - Platter’s SA Wine Guide 2015, 5*

'Very fresh and Cabernet Franc. Dry finish but creditable.' - Jancis Robinson MW, JancisRobinson.com, 17/20 (Jun 2014)
