Babylon's Peak Shiraz
Babylon's Peak is a private, family-run winery in Paardeburg, Swartland, South Africa that produces some of our favorite wines from that country. Their textbook hot climate Shiraz offers bombastic aromas of smoke, violets, and blueberries on the nose. The palate showcases savory, spicy flavors of bacon and white pepper along with fruitier notes of blackberry and plum jam. It was aged in oak for 12-14 months and has a long finish with prominent tannins.
