Babylonstoren Cabernet Sauvignonis a dry, full-bodied red wine from Simonsberg,
South Africa. It's 100% Cabernet Sauvignon with 14.3% abv. Suitable for
Klaas Stoffberg & Charl Coetzee's newest red wine release from the sought-after
Babylonstoren Farm in Simonsberg. This red is made using exclusively Cabernet
Sauvignon grapes harvested on the foothills of Simonsberg Mountain, a region
nestled between Paarl, Franschhoek and Stellenbosch in the Western Cape. The
juice is matured in French oak after fermentation with 40% going into new oak
and 60% going into second-fill oak for 18 months. Big fruits like blackcurrant,
black cherry and cassis dominate over velvet, chocolatey tannins with a hint of
sweet tobacco and cedarwood. Marvellous now but will age for 10 years.
Food pairing: Oxtail stew, fillet of beef, well-seasoned peppery lamb, burger
with tangy blue cheese, buttery and garlicky Portobello mushrooms.
Cheese pairing: Gorgonzola, cheesy polenta, aged cheddar or gouda.
