The farms’ unique terroir in the Paardeberg is ideally suited to Rhône varietals and therefore is the main focus. The soil is granite-based, which contributes to the distinctive character of the wines. Access to dryland bushvines with an age of 30 years and older do set us apart from the rest. All the wines are grown, produced and bottled on the farm. With 350 HA under vine, the farm harvests ±2500 tons annually, of which 400 tons are bottled under the Babylon’s Peak brand with a red/white production ratio of 70/30.

Babylon’s Peak produces a host of top quality varietals including Chenin Blanc, Viognier, Roussanne, Shiraz, Mourvédre, Grenache, Carignan and Pinotage.

CHENIN
BLANC

Crisp, fresh and fruity. This wine has a great spectrum of fruit aromas and minerality, which are terroir-driven. A lively and lingering palate

Viognier
Roussanne

Complex flavours of flowers, peach, apricot and spices. The integration of oak and fruit ads depth with a long, smooth finish on the palate.

Cabernet
Sauvignon
Malbec

Ripe mulberry and fresh raspberry flavours are complimented with soft tannins and a long, smooth finish.

Pinotage

Elegance, finesse and fruit driven. The dark colour, soft tannins and fine complexity is a true reflection from our granite soils. A lively mid palate is rounded off by a lingering presence of ripe tannins.

Shiraz
Carignan

Complexity and concentration of fruit. Both cultivars compliment each other beautifully. Dark berry flavours are complimented by spicy undertones with a soft mouthfeel that lingers on the palate.

S.M.G

Elegance, finesse, complexity and concentration of fruit. Complex nose of white and black pepper. The integration of oak and tannin adds depth and complexity.

Cinsault

The soft tannins and fine complexity is a true reflection from our granite soils. A fruit driven wine with lively light palate and lingering mouthfeel.
