In the glass, The First Lady Cabernet Sauvignon from Warwick Estate offers a bright crimson colour. The bouquet of this red wine from the Coastal region captivates with hints of mulberry, blackberry, blackcurrant and blueberry. If we continue to sense the aroma, we add cigar crates, toasted barriques and oak wood, promoted by the influence of oak.
This dry red wine from Warwick Estate is ideal for wine lovers who prefer 0.0 grams of sugar in the wine. The First Lady Cabernet Sauvignon already comes quite close to this, as it was pressed with just 2.7 grams of residual sugar. On the tongue, this balanced red wine is characterized by an incredibly velvety texture. With its succinct fruit acidity, The First Lady Cabernet Sauvignon reveals itself wonderfully fresh and lively on the palate. In the finish, this red wine from the Coastal Region wine-growing region ultimately inspires with considerable length. Again, there are hints of mulberry and blueberry.
