The First Lady Pinotage is a light and lively number that isn’t shy of a bit of spice. In that sense, it’s not unlike our legendary First Lady, Normal Ratcliffe, who became the first woman to serve as Chairperson for the prestigious Cape Winemakers’ Guild. Her legend lives on in this range.

The Warwick harvest team pick our Pinotage fairly ripe, giving lashings of rich black cherries and ripe strawberry elements, as well as those tell-tale cured meat aromas that Pinotage delivers. The grapes spend as long as two weeks on skins, lending the wine a spectacular crimson colour, as well some powdery tannins. The wine goes through malolactic conversion, adding a velvety texture, and hints of milk chocolate. Finally, all components aee aged in oak, adding a silky finish with hints of spice.
