Produced from vineyards that are situated on Babylon Farm in the Ward of Hemel-en-Aarde Ridge, Walker Bay. All grapes were harvested by hand in cool early morning temperatures at varying stages of ripeness throughout early to mid-March in order to achieve a more complex wine profile. Batches of Sauvignon Blanc (93%) and Semillon (7%) grapes are harvested early in the morning and then de-stemmed and crushed at cold temperatures using dry ice to prevent oxidation of the must and to preserve flavours and aromas. The skins are pressed lightly, and the juice left to settle for a period of 48 hours at 10°C. The Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon are fermented separately in stainless steel tanks and maintained at temperatures between 12-16°C until the wine is dry. After fermentation, the wines are racked off the gross lees and blended. Thereafter the wines are left on the fine lees for six months before filtration and bottling occurs. Bottled at 13%. (Bottle size 750ml)

Nose: Strong aromas of freshly cut grass, asparagus, gooseberries and white pepper. With time an intriguing dusty savoury character reveals itself.

Palate: On entry, concentrated notes of lemon, lime and gooseberries standout. Mid-palate has a more oily texture with dusty savoury notes.

Finish: Refreshing acidity with lingering notes of white pepper.
