The First Lady range of wines are a tribute to Norma Ratclife. The founder and first winemaker at Warwick Estate and of the first women to make wine in South Africa. The First Lady Sauvignon Blanc is the latest edition to the first lady range. Currently in its third vintage it has established itself very quickly as one of the most popular wine on the estate.
Pale gold with kiwi fruit green tint, light bouche luminously in the glass. Aromas of crushed passion fruit off the vine, white blossom and just ripe figs, sewn up with a seam of flint and nettle. On the palate juicy tropical fruits take you straight to the islands, with layers of melon, passion fruit and kiwi. Bone dry and textured, lemon-and-lime highlight the tropical fruit, finishing with bright, zingy acidity.
Food matches: Pairs with a wide range of dishes from light summer salads to roast a chicken dinner.
