Friends for supper at the new house and it seemed a nice idea to open a bottle of South African wine for Megan.
2003 Warwick Estate Trilogy Stellenbosch, South Africa
Liking the South African Bordeaux blends, you can tell they are from the new world with such power and complexity!! Tried some excellent ones at the wine awards back in September.This top of the range wine comes from a well regarded producer where effort and concentration has clearly been put into the bottle.Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot blend. Predominantly Cabernet, a rich and warm nose with dark black fruits, smoke, all spice and blackberry with a great smooth palate structure and a touch of herbal mint.5 years of age.
