2021 Babylonstoren Candide Simonsberg-Paarl
Tropical fruits on the nose. On the palate a fresh, fruit-driven wine with peach, lime, and litchi ﬂavors. The wine is refreshing yet complex, with tropical ﬂavours and lingering, fresh acidity.
49% chenin blanc
6% sauvignon blanc
Wines are created in the high-tech cellar, with pressing and stainless steel aging occurring at ground level. Wines that will require oak aging are pumped below ground to the cellar. Cellarmaster Charl Coetzee and winemaker Klaas Stoffberg both have extensive experience producing wine both abroad and at home in South Africa. They work together to ensure that wines are as simple and pure as possible, striving for “Truth to the area we are situated in on the slopes of Simonsberg, and simplicity by making elegant and balanced wines as natural as possible.”
