Babylon's Peak Carignan 2020 'Elegant, stylish: perfect for a festive lunch!'

Babylon's Peak Shiraz/Carignan 2019
From the coastal Swartland region of South Africa this red wine (Shiraz 60%, Carignan 40%) is made from 28-year-old vines, pruned for low yield and later hand-picked. The grapes are de-stemmed, but not crushed, after which they macerate at cool temperature for 48 hours then ferment in open tanks at around 25 ° C for seven days. Next the juice is racked into old French barrels for a further malolactic fermentation and maturation for 12 months.

 

All that work pays off with a stylish elegant red wine with some spicy overtones and a very long and smooth finish. Great with steaks but drinks well as a posh red for a good, long lunch; say one with crackers, party hats, silly jokes and a turkey...
