Dry, full-bodied red wine. Deep crimson red. Aromas of red plum, blueberry perfumes with hints of sweet tobacco and cedarwood shavings. A fusion of dark fruits, cherries and cassis with a velvety texture creates this soft, multi-layered wine with well-rounded tannins and a lingering finish.

'Maiden vintage of a single-variety Cab from this property and it’s very nicely judged. Matured for 18 months in 300-litre oak barrels, 40% new. The nose shows red and black berries, violets, some leafiness and vanilla while the palate is medium bodied with pure fruit, fresh acidity and ripe tannins, the finish long and savoury.' – Winemag Prescient Cabernet Sauvignon Report 2020, Top 10

Klaas Stoffberg & Charl Coetzee's newest red wine release from the sought-after Babylonstoren Farm in Simonsberg. This red is made using exclusively Cabernet Sauvignon grapes harvested on the foothills of Simonsberg Mountain, a region nestled between Paarl, Franschhoek and Stellenbosch in the Western Cape.

The Estate 
Babylonstoren dates back to 1692 and is one of the oldest Cape Dutch farms. The 580-hectare farm has 88 hectares under vine, producing 13 different grape varieties. The wines, which are made as naturally as possible, are a representation of their soils and climate and are produced in a state-of-the-art winery. The 2011 vintage was the first to be bottled under the Babylonstoren label. The Babylonstoren logo is a true reflection of the wines, consisting of the pipe (representing the farmer), the flower (representing the garden) and the bird (representing nature).
