The Warwick First Ladies Are in Town

Warwick’s The First Lady wine range is a tribute to Norma Ratcliffe, the wife of Stan Ratcliffe, who bought the family estate in 1964. She was one of the first female winemakers in South Africa, as well as the first female member of the Cape Winemakers Guild. She was also the only woman to chair it. In short, Norma was a real tough cookie.

Only the toughest of women deserve a wine range named after them, and Deeliver is honoured to host three of these gorgeous ladies on our app. Read their profiles below and take them on a date or two.

The First Lady Unoaked Chardonnay

This lady will add sunshine and zest to your day. She’s playful, loves wearing summer dresses, and tries not to take life too seriously. Her lean style and distinctive minerality will make you feel young when you spend time with her. She aims to preserve freshness and fruit integrity like a Woolworths fruit salad, so if you plan to make her a home-cooked meal, try to incorporate it: smoky swordfish with pineapple salsa or pork belly served with caramelised apples, you get the idea. At least she’s not picky about how much fat is allowed on her red meat.

The First Lady Cabernet Sauvignon

If you’re looking for a goal-orientated and elegant woman who can dress herself up for the big dance, but also hop onto the back of a bakkie, this is the lady for you. She is a rollercoaster of smoothness and excitement. This is the kind of matured and relaxed lady you want to introduce to your parents or meet up with friends at a braai. Her favourite snacks are dark chocolate, liquorice and dark berries. You can treat her with almost anything, from low grilled beef briskets with creamy Dijon mash and garlic beans to a picnic with a basket of cured salamis and cheese. This woman is the real deal like an authentic leather handbag.

The First Lady Dry Rose

A sophisticated pink lady with a hint of naughtiness. She has a dry sense of humour that will make you wonder whether she made a serious statement. She meets her friends at least once a month for brunch and loves experimenting with fresh herbs in her meals. This lady will give you a new outlook on life. She enjoys the conventional romantic gestures, such as rose petals on the floor and strawberries in champagne (or sparkling wine, whatever you can afford), but can also get kinky with fruit salad. You’ll smell her flowery fragrance on your clothes for at least two days.

The winemakers of Warwick have a philosophy of quality without compromise, and this also shines through in these three First Ladies. Call them today on the Deeliver app and enjoy their company.
