75cl * Vegan * 14% ABV * Franschhoek, South Africa
Babylonstoren, a stunning wine farm and garden outside Franschhoek, is one of South Africa's best-known attractions and an ideal base for a Cape Winelands tour.
This is a complex, elegant wine with concentrated aromatics all captured in one bottle: floral notes and hints of peaches, dried apricots, liquorice and Turkish delight. Succulent white peach, apricot and apple blossom aromas. The subtle oak spice adds creamy depth and complexity, enhancing the ripe-fruited characteristics that make viognier so distinctive.
Time spent in French oak barrels makes this bold white fuller on the palate – an ideal winter white that pairs well with complex flavours such as shellfish or any spicy dish. Ideally paired with mild, creamy curries, dishes with ginger, saffron and coconut or fruity dishes such as chicken or lamb tagine with apricot. Serve chilled (11–12°C).
