2022 Babylonstoren Rose of Mourvedre South Africa
Winemaker Notes: A light pink salmon color, with strawberries and rose petals on the nose. On the palate, a hint of watermelon and crushed pomegranate on the palate, rounded off with fresh acidity for a delicious, lingering mouth-feel.
Grown on the slopes of the Simonsberg Mountain between the wine-growing areas of Franschhoek, Stellenbosch and Paarl, Western Cape, South Africa. Klapmuts/Longlands type soils of Malmesbury shale origin. Grapes were given minimal skin
contact in the press, after which cold fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks for three weeks. It was racked off the primary lees and kept on the secondary lees for a month. Small components of the total rosé blend were fermented and
matured in Nomblot cement eggs and terracotta clay amphorae. Served chilled, 11–12°C (51–53°F). Preferably drink within one year of production. The perfect partner with trout, salmon or sushi.
