Backsberg Klein Babylons Toren 2015

Violets, cassis and dried herb aromas form a complex bouquet, hinting at the palate’s awaiting intensity. Ripe blackberry flavours are prominent on the firmly structured palate of fine,fruit tannins. Subtle oak derived characters of cinnamon and vanilla also evident.

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

ageing : 10 - 20 years

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 a roundness and silky texture. The cultivars are then blended shortly before pressing. The wine is aged in oak barrels for 12 - 18 months.
