2018 WARWICK ESTATE BLUE LADY STELLENBOSCH SOUTH AFRICA CABERNET SAUVIGNON

$60.00 $60.00

Warwick Estate sits in the foothills of Simonsberg Mountain in the Simonsberg-Stellenbosch Ward, known by wine connoisseurs worldwide as the prime sub-regional viticultural area of Stellenbosch. In South Africa’s Wine of Origin classification system, a “ward” is the term used for a small, viticultural area within a larger district or region defined by a distinctive soil type and climate.

Warwick’s vineyard team farms the land sustainably, respecting nature and biodiversity by sowing cover crops to promote microbial activity in the soil, irrigating only when necessary, and encouraging natural predators that limit pests. Simonsberg Mountain’s granite-based soils and marked elevation changes create a series of microclimates ideal for Bordeaux varieties. The 2018 vintage of “The Blue Lady” is a single vineyard, 100% Cabernet Sauvignon that reveals the power, rich concentration, and well-integrated tannic structure of world-class Stellenbosch wines.

"Stylish expression from 3 own parcels, 18 (96 pts) blueberry & herbaceous notes, cassis & violet, lengthy 36-day post-ferment skin maturation & well-judged 24 months oak, 36% new, deliver beautiful chalky tannins. Approachable, but enough structure for confident ageing."
96 Points "Five Stars"
"The Blue Lady uses Cabernet Sauvignon grapes from three separate blocks picked over a period of ten days. Big, rich, dense and textured, with mocha oak, well-managed tannins and plenty of flesh and power."
93 Points
"Rich, round and juicy, the 2018 The Blue Lady Cabernet Sauvignon is oak-driven and softly herbal, possessing layers of black fruits, vanilla and exotic spiced tea aromas. Full-bodied, elongated and broad-shouldered, this Cabernet will bring pleasure for years to come and please most California Cabernet drinkers. The wine concludes with a firm, tannic edge that will need some time to settle in the bottle but will remain food-friendly for more than a decade. Before being bottled, the wine rested for 27 months in 25% new French oak barrels."
92 Points
"This full-bodied wine offers a ripe range of black cherry coulis and damson plum preserves, vanilla, bay leaf and licorice notes, finding fine balance thanks to vibrant acidity that enlivens the rich profile. Delivers chalky, well-knit tannins that firm the finish. Best from 2023 through 2028. 250 cases imported"
