Backsberg Klein Babylons Toren 2016

Backsberg Klein Babylons Toren 2016

With a powerful bouquet of violet, cassis and dried herbs, this complex red blend, consisting of primarily Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, is quietly
resolute. Rich yet structured, this wine will reward careful cellaring over the next ten years.

This blend matches classic and special occasion meals such as roast beef and lamb. Makes a worthy gift.

in the vineyard : Sun worshiping, open armed lyre trellised vines as well as older VSP hedged vines - situated on the slopes of the Simonsberg Mountain in soils of weathered granite and Oak leaf - ensure optimal grape ripeness.

in the cellar : The smallest, waxiest berries are selected for this Bordeaux blend. Cultivars are fermented individually and remain on the skins well after fermentation is complete. This post fermentative maceration adds layer upon layer of tannin structure and contributes to a roundness and silky texture. The cultivars are then blended shortly before pressing. The wine is aged in oak barrels for 12 -18 months.
