Babylon`s Peak Babylons Peak Pinotage
Dry White Varieties (<5g/l or up to 9g/l if TA <2g/l lower)


Babylon's Peak winery, situated on the highest weathered granite slopes of the Paardeberg Mountain, is privately owned by the Basson family who has passed down the tradition, passion and art of winemaking over four generations. Predominantly low-yield dryland bushvines are selected to produce these excellent wines with distinctive character. IN THE VINEYARD The Pinotage is dryland bushvines, planted on the highest south-east facing granite slopes on the farm. Due to its unique terroir, this vineyard ripens slowly over a very long period. This results in very dark colour, soft tannins and good flavour compounds. The baboons normally harvest their quanity first and we pick the rest. TASTING NOTE Dark red colour, with ripe plums and mocha on the nose. Dark fruit followed by spice on the palate. A well balanced wine with smooth integrated tannins. FOOD RECOMMENDATION Enjoy with lamb, bobotie and braaied red meat.
