Description

Backsberg Klein Babylonstoren 2015

No, not like the movies babylon. Backsberg A blend of 53% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Merlot, 14% Petit Verdot. Klein Babylons Toren is a specially crafted cuvée on the basis of varietal intensity and character.

Violets, cassis and dried herb aromas form a complex bouquet. Ripe blackberry flavors are prominent on the firmly structured palate of fine, fruit tannins that finishes dry with characters of cinnamon and vanilla. Rich yet structured, this wine drinks well now, and will repay careful cellaring over the next 10 years from vintage.

The smallest, waxiest berries are selected for this Bordeaux blend. Cultivars are fermented individually and remain on the skins well after fermentation is complete. This post fermentative maceration adds layer upon layer of tannin structure and contributes to a roundness and silky texture. The cultivars are then blended shortly before pressing. The wine is aged in oak barrels for 12 -18 months.

Backsberg’s philosophy remains that of providing pleasure and enjoyment to a broad range of wine lovers by producing wines not only with structure and finesse, but also with a high level of “drinkability”. To put it simply, if you find their wines easy to drink then they are achieving what they want.
