Dry White Blends (<5g/l or up to 9g/l if TA <2g/l lower) () Unwooded any vintage
Candide is a blend of all the white
cultivars grown at Babylonstoren. The chardonnay was fermented in second- and
third-fill French oak barrels, before being blended with the fresh components.
The chenin blanc and sémillon were softly pressed, then underwent three weeks of
cold fermentation in stainless steel tanks. The viognier and roussanne were aged
in Nomblot cement eggs and terracotta clay amphorae. They were racked off the
primary lees and kept on the secondary lees for four months prior to bottling.
Perfect partner with spring vegetable dishes,
chicken or ham salad with stone fruit.
