Warwick Trilogy is Warwick Wine Estate’s flagship Bordeaux blend. The maiden vintage of this premium wine was 1986 and it was officially released in 1987. The wine quickly established itself as one of South Africa’s top red wines. The vineyards are planted on the southwest facing, cooler slopes, which have deep, granite-rich clay soils. The apex of soil and aspect is perfect suited to the slower ripening varieties of Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, which make up the blend. From the watershed vintage of 2015, Cabernet Franc has led—and dominated—the blend to even greater heights. The variety has proved itself to be highly expressive of the unique and divergent terroir of the Simonsberg.

Each component was harvested separately, de-stemmed and sorted into tank.

The wines spent between 20 and 40 days depending on the tannin structure with three or four pump overs per day and then pressed to undergo malolactic fermentation in barrel and tank.

After completion the wine was racked to French oak barrels (60% new oak was used) for a period of 27 months before a strict selection process, where only the best barrels from the best blocks are selected. Wines are blended together and allowed to clarify naturally before bottling in September 2018.
