Warwick White Lady Chardonnay 2021

Warwick White Lady Chardonnay 2021


Warm and inviting nose with hints of orchard blossom, citrus, apricot, peach, and spices. The palate is powerful and rich with great structure, baked apple, toasted almonds, and freshly baked brioche, all kept in check by tangy acidity. Ready to enjoy now but will develop well and reward careful cellaring

More Information

In the cellar

Whole bunch pressed and juice allowed to clear naturally before transferred to 228L BurgundianFrench oak barrels for fermentation. 32% new oak, 26% second fill, 37% third fill, 5% forth fill and the balance in neutral oak. Barrels are rolled once a month for nine months before a tight selection process and blending early in 2021.

In the vineyard

Specifically-selected Stellenbosch sites. Two of which are on the Helderberg, these add more freshness and acidity. Then one from Warwick on a warmer West facing slope of the Simonsberg, which adds textural and structural elements and some floral lift to the wine. All three vineyards are picked separately at dierent ripeness levels to add complexity.


This wine will reward cellaring over the next seven to ten years.

About the Wine Estate

When people talk about the ‘history’ of a place, they think of the people who lived there, and the personalities who built it. For Warwick Estate, ‘history’ began when the first title deed was issued for the land in 1771. For almost two hundred years, it was a hugely productive fruit farm that served the Cape’s growing pioneer population. It was only in 1964 that the Ratcliffe Family arrived on the scene, and it took winemaker Norma Ratcliffe, alongside her husband Stan, twenty years before they released their first wine. Warwick’s La Femme Bleu Cabernet Sauvignon was released in 1984, after which the estate went on to bottle the first ever ‘Cape Blend’ in the world, won multiple international wine awards, appeared on some of the planet’s most prestigious wine lists, and even became a wine of choice for James Bond in one of his many adventures. In many senses, the Warwick Estate brand that you know today was developed the same way one might nurture a grape vine; through decade upon decade of careful planning, pruning, and persistence.
