Warwick The First Lady Pinotage 2020
By Christian Eedes, 10 October 2022
The First Lady Pinotage 2020 from Warwick in Stellenbosch is not exactly new wave but it’s not old school either. Matured for 14 months in oak of which 10% was new, the nose shows red cherry, rose and a hint of spice while the palate is light (although not that low in alcohol at 14%) with succulent, clean fruit bright acidity and soft tannins. It doesn’t trade off chocolate flavour or massive extraction and is just very likeable. Price: R110 a bottle.
CE’s rating: 90/100.
