Babel 2020, Babylonstoren

£15.20 per bottle

About this wine

Babylonstoren Babel is full-bodied red blend (48% Shiraz, 13% Merlot, 11% Petit Verdot, 10% Malbec, 10% Cabernet Franc, 7% Pinotage) wine with a bouquet of crushed mulberry, blackberry and plum with well-judged oak maturation, adding layers of sweet spice, vanilla and dark chocolate.  On the palate, succulent black fruit with a savoury edge of cigar box and graphite, all held together beautifully with smooth tannins and a tightly knit structure.

Ageing potential: Will age well for five to eight years.

Serving temperature: Room temperature, 16–18°C (60–64°F).

Food Pairing: Youthful and vibrant with enough depth to hold its own in the company of slow-cooked game or oxtail stews, barbecued boerewors, grilled lamb chops with rosemary or lightly spiced pulled pork shoulder.

Alcohol: 14% ABV
