Warwick Estate Trilogy 2015

Chalk your name on a Cape classic!

Warwick Estate Trilogy 2015

We are delighted to offer members the opportunity to buy one of South Africa’s top red wines, at en primeur prices, for delivery in spring 2019.

Warwick has been one of the stars of the Cape wine scene since the 1960s, initially via the stewardship of ‘First Lady’ Norma Ratcliffe – one of the first women to make her mark on the South African wine industry – and these days under dynamic like-mother-like-son Mike Ratcliffe. Trilogy was added to their portfolio in 1986 and has established a deserved reputation as one of the Cape’s finest – and most delicious – blends of Bordeaux grape varieties.

The 2015 is one of the great South African vintages of recent times, making this latest release an unmissable addition to any collection.

Tasting notes:

Trilogy has always been Bordeaux-inspired. In its earlier days it was cabernet sauvignon-led. In 2001, cabernet franc overtook merlot for the first time, and the fine 2015 is the first to be cabernet franc-led. Still young, but with fine balance between beautifully ripe fruit and elegant tannins, it is starting to reveal some of the graphite notes and complexity to come.

The wine be delivered in early 2019

When the wine reaches the UK, you can opt to have it delivered immediately or store in our Members’ Reserves facility. Duty and VAT will be payable when the wine is withdrawn.

Recommended drinking dates

Like fine Bordeaux, Trilogy is a wine with a serious track record for ageing – further enhanced in recent years by greater selection in both vineyard and cellar. Our recommended drinking window is now to 2035, depending on whether you prefer your reds in their fruity youth or mellow maturity.

Order by 8pm on Monday 24th July

Orders will be then be entered into an allocation system and confirmations of successful orders will be sent out in early August.

What is an en primeur offer?

En primeur offers – also known as opening or 'in-bond' offers – offer wines immediately upon release – in many cases before the wines have been bottled. Offering wine in this way gives members a chance to secure stocks of sought-after wines as soon as they are released for sale at opening prices.

We’ve been offering wine this way since the mid-1970s, so you can buy with complete confidence!
