Picked ‘as fresh as can be’ according to winemaker Henry Kotzé, this is a barrel-fermented combination of Sauvignon Blanc with 43% Semillon. Tangy and lightly reductive, with wet stone aromas and appealing freshness and length. 91pts Tim Atkin, MW
Save 25%. Warwick Estate love to produce wine that they enjoy drinking themselves. The First Lady Sauvignon Blanc is a zingy wine with fresh acidity and tropical fruits flavours of melon, limes and citrus. A recent addition to the First Lady range, the Sauvignon Blanc has quickly established itself as one of the estate’s most popular wines.
The best components of the vintage go into this blend of Cabernet Sauvignon with Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, and what a vintage 2015 was. This is a ripe, full-bodied style with supple mulberry fruit flavours complemented by oak and underlying acidity. 93pts Tim Atkin, MW
Lourens River Valley is Morgenster’s second wine, made (like the Grand Vin) with French consultant, Pierre Lurton. This is a very fine, Merlot and Cabernet Franc dominated red with smooth, nuanced tannins, notes of cut grass and graphite and stylish oak. 93pts Tim Atkin, MW
Save 25%. Brand new to the First Lady range, this is the first vintage of this wine, made using South Africa’s signature red varietal. Aged for 14 months in old oak, to add structure and body without overpowering the rich flavours of dark cherry, chocolate and rooibos tea.
