Tasting notes:
'Pencil shavings and sweet tobacco with mulberry, cherries and dark chocolate on the nose. A balanced fusion of dark red berry and chocolate flavours with a soft mouth-feel and juicy, lingering finish.' – Winemaker

Alc: 14.2%

Tasting notes on the 2017 vintage:
'It doesn't quite speak in different tongues, but this Babel red certainly contains plenty of grape varieties: mostly Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon with lesser amounts of Malbec, Petit Verdot, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Pinotage. Youthful, intense and well balanced, with toasty wood, glossy tannins, some liquorice and blackberry and fresh acidity. Drink 2021-27.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2019, 90/100

About Babylonstoren:
Babylonstoren dates back to 1692 and is one of the oldest Cape Dutch farms. The 580-hectare farm has 88 hectares under vine, producing 13 different grape varieties. The wines, which are made as naturally as possible, are a representation of their soils and climate and are produced in a state-of-the-art winery. The 2011 vintage was the first to be bottled under the Babylonstoren label. The Babylonstoren logo is a true reflection of the wines, consisting of the pipe (representing the farmer), the flower (representing the garden) and the bird (representing nature).
