Bask in the fresh spring air with a refreshingly delicious glass of Babylonstoren Mourvèdre Rosé 2020.
Now that the days are stretching their limbs into warmer evenings and the blossoms are attracting birds and pollinators to our gardens, we can revel in the freedoms of the new season.
The February 2020 harvest was bountiful for Babylonstoren. The usually intense heatwaves of the Cape Winelands gave way to more favourable conditions with higher levels of the Berg River, resulting in a bumper crop of red grapes, offering the winemakers a broader selection of the best fruit for their rosé wine.
The result is an ethereal, dry wine of a salmon pink colour that evokes flavours of the season – hints of red berries and floral notes – divine aromas for basking in the sunshine. A single sip leads to the delightful discovery of creamy rhubarb, the sweet freshness of watermelon and a subtle punch of acidity.
It is best enjoyed in the garden, paired with light summer dishes, like fresh asparagus, Parma ham, salads, charcuterie and fish.
Close your eyes, sip the wine and you’ll instantly be transported to the sun-kissed Cape Winelands of the historic farm, winery and hotel nestled on the Simonsberg slopes.
