A great combination of site, soils and weather on the belly of the Babylonstoren mountain slopes allow us to ripen the grapes perfectly, retaining wonderful acidities and a gamut of flavours. This is then settled and racked to small French barrels for fermentation and 9 months of aging.
Depth and clarity are the defining characteristics of this wine.
The nose shows gentle wood smoke, oyster bed, seville orange and lime peel, orange flower water as well as buttery, lactic notes.
The flavour profile of the wine is decidedly fresh and cool, balanced tantalisingly with a rich, unctuous palate. On the palate, the fruit shows yellow and green plums, finishing with more lime peel and wood smoke. The wine is tight-knit, showing beautifully integrated oak flavours.
Such a complex wine is always evolving and will reward slow savouring, as well as a number of years in the cellar.
