Babylon's Peak Viognier Roussanne 2017

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. This excellent Rhône style white wine is a blend of Viognier (73%) and Roussanne (27%) made from only the first 400 litres of free-run juice per ton of grapes. Each grape variety was fermented separately in older 300 litre oak barrels. After fermentation the two wines were blended and put back into the same barrels to mature for three months on the lees until bottling. This award winning white wine offers complex flavours of flowers, peach, dried pear and apricot with a long, smooth finish on the palate.
