Babylonstoren - Soetmelksvlei
Red Blend, Paarl, South Africa
Soetmelksvlei (sut-malks-flay) loosely translates to "The Land of Milk and Honey". Soetmelksvlei is an old school Bordeaux style blend from the New World. This is a dry wine with very ripe, acidic red fruits on the nose and palate followed by notes of black cherry, chocolate and vanilla. This wine finishes with minerally notes reminiscent of slate.
