About this Item

Trilogy, 2011
1 (1 x 1) 5000ml

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.

The Trilogy, named for the three major varieties of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot, is their flagship blend.

Critics Ratings

'As its name suggests, this is a three-way blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon with 30% Cabernet Franc and 15% Merlot. It’s tighter and fresher than the 2010, with leafy complexity, notes of mocha and graphite and lovely perfume. Floral and feminine. Drink: 2015-24' - Tim Atkin SA Wine Report 2014, 94/100

'Cab-led Bordeaux-style red blend & flagship, 11 a classic Cape expression marrying cassis fruit, exotic spice & fine tannins. Seriously wooded - 2+ years French barrels, 60% new - setting the stage for a grand future.' - Platter's SA Wine Guide 2015, 4.5*
