Winemaking is in the blood for Stephan Basson. He grew up on the farm and after completing his studies he joined his father and began winemaking. 

As I mentioned above, this is a blend similar to what they make in the South Rhone in France. Babylon's Peak grow, produce and bottle on the farm which is not as common as you may think for a new world winery. They harvest about 2,500 tons of grapes so are a fairly large operation and the bulk of these varieties are Rhone styles like in this blend. 

This wine is full of dark fruits like ripe blackberries and will give you that spicy pepper of the Shiraz. A great little left-field option if you are having a more rich flavoured meat like lamb or mutton.
