SHIRAZ 2019 BABYLONSTOREN

AREA OF PRODUCTION:

On the slopes of the Simonsberg Mountain between the wine-growing areas of Franschhoek, Stellenbosch and Paarl, Western Cape, South Africa.

SOIL COMPOSITION:

Combination of Klapmuts/Longlands type soils of Malmesbury shale origin as well as Oakleaf and Hutton type soils of Cape granite origin.

VINIFICATION AND PRODUCTION SYSTEM:

Matured in French oak, this wine has a surprisingly fresh mid-palate. Fermentation takes place on the skins for about seven days, after which it gets an extended maceration period of about one week. The wine then gets pressed into a combination of 70% new and 30% second-fill 300-litre French oak barrels. After malolactic fermentation, the wine gets racked and is then returned to the barrels for a total of 18 months before bottling.

ORGANOLEPTIC DESCRIPTION:

The wine is refreshing yet complex, with lovely tropical flavours rounded off with a lingering, fresh acidity.
