The name Sauvignon Blanc means ‘Wild White’ as it once grew wild in the South West of France. Its elegance and supreme drinkability make it a highlight of The First Lady range.

A tropical storm bursting with fruit and vibrant acidity this wine was built for long lunches with great friends, any day of the week.

Pale gold with a kiwi fruit green rim, light bounces luminously in the glass. Aromas of crushed passion fruit off the vine, white blossom, and justripe 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, lemonand- lime highlight the tropical fruits, finishing with bright, zingy acidity.

This wine loves food almost as much as you do. Incredibly versatile it pairs with a wide range of dishes from light summer salads to a roast chicken dinner.

Warwick Estate is perfectly situated for Cabernet Sauvignon. When Stan Ratcliffe and wife Norma first started making wine from the estate they realised the outstanding quality of Cabernet Sauvignon that the soil produced. The Blue Lady offers blackberries, crème de cassis with graphite and tobacco leaf on the nose. The palate has immense body with an opulent texture and a wealth of fruit.

Lush blackcurrant, mint and chocolate notes with chewy ripe tannins and a racy, fresh feel. A balance between the restraint of Bordeaux and the Uber-Cabs of California.
