'A truly classy blend bursting with black cherry, violet, cocoa nibs, and milk chocolate with grippy, fruit-wrapped tannins. Complex already, even in its relative youth.' – Decanter World Wine Awards, 95/100 (Gold)

'Estate’s flagship always Bordeaux styled, cab leading 5-way blend in 2018. Poised & full, intriguing thyme fragrance alongside cigarbox, cocoa & graphite lacing ripe blackcurrant fruit. Tannins firm, decanting advised; excellent cellaring prospects (magnums available). All-new oak, 23 months; other reds 30-70%, 12-18 months.' – Platter's Guide, 4.5* (91/100)

'Intriguing fragrance of violets and thyme, intense blackcurrant and underlying cigar-box. Superbly crafted with good balance of vibrant multi-layered dark red fruits supported by tight, well-honed tannins. Handles the oak effortlessly. Opulent yet sophisticated with a long, compelling finish. Satisfying now, but will develop and unfold its many treasures over time.' – Winemaker

Producer information 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).
