Cabernet Franc, 1990
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.

Situated on the famed slopes of the Simonsberg in Stellenbosch, Warwick Wine Estate was purchased in 1964 by Stan and Norma Ratcliffe. Planting the estate to, mostly, Bordeaux varieties, Norma Ratcliffe pioneered varietal Cabernet Franc and she is considered a legend of the 90s Stellenbosch wine landscape. The 1990 was awarded a much-coveted Platter’s 5-star rating. In 2018 Warwick was acquired by Eileses Capital, a San Francisco investment firm.
