Babylonstoren - Shiraz 2018

Normale prijs
Normale prijs
Inclusief belasting


Sappigheid, vol cassis en zachte pruim, veel concentratie, mooie ronde tannines en een verrassende frisheid. Veel lengte, fluweelzacht, met een voor Shiraz kenmerkend pepertje, en mooie balans tussen fruit en hout. Gaat prachtig samen met elke vorm van wild begeleid door bijvoorbeeld een mooie bessensaus.

Vivino rating 4.2


100% shiraz

AREA OF PRODUCTION: On the slopes of the Simonsberg Mountain between the
wine growing areas of Franschhoek, Stellenbosch and Paarl, Western Cape, South Africa.

SOIL COMPOSITION: Klapmuts/Longlands type soils of Malmesbury shale origin.

VINIFICATION & PRODUCTION SYSTEM: Fermentation takes place on the skins
for about seven days, after which it gets an extended maceration period of about one
week. The wine then gets pressed into a combination of 70% new and 30% second-fill
300 litre French oak barrels. After malolactic fermentation the wine gets racked and is
then returned to the barrels for another 18 months before bottling.

ORGANOLEPTIC DESCRIPTION: Dry, full-bodied red wine.

COLOUR: Deep ruby red colour.

BOUQUET: Fruit driven, cool cassis and pencil shavings on the nose with aromatic
layers of spiciness and black pepper.

TASTE: Finely crafted to portray layers of cherry, soft prune, blackcurrant and hints of
spice. Elegant, velvety mouth-feel and long, lingering finish.

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

PRESERVATION: Can be enjoyed from the year of release, with an ageing potential
of up to ten years.

GASTRONOMIC SUGGESTIONS: Any venison or game dish with a berry sauce as
well as spicy dishes.
