Pinotage & cab 60/32 partners, spiced with a drop of cab franc in 20 (94 pts). Gentle handling & freshness add refinement, class to richly textured, ripe dark berries, seamlessly incorporated tannins. Polished in oak, 31% new, year. Last was 17.

92 pts Tim Atkin MW 2023

Back after a break in 2018 and 2019, Three Cape Ladies contains its highest-ever percentage of Pinotage, with 32% Cabernet Sauvignon and 8% Cabernet Franc completing the blend. Modern, juicy and aromatic, with good colour and density, scented 31% new oak and a macedoine of bramble, cassis and strawberry. 2023-28

90 pts James Suckling Oct 2022

This shows earthy and spicy character with dark fruit, chocolate and cedar on offer. Medium- to full-bodied with chalky tannins and a creamy texture. Ripe, yet vivid and juicy. Flavorful finish. A blend of 60% pinotage, 32% cabernet sauvignon and 8% cabernet franc. Sustainable. Drink now.

Winemaker Notes

The Three Cape Ladies was the first Cape Blend ever bottled. It was also James Bond’s seductive wine of choice in the 007 book Carte Blanche, published in 2011. If you now feel the need to use a Sean Connery voice whenever you say “Three Cape Ladies”, we completely understand.
