DILWORTH & ALLAIN - BABYLON COUP DE FOUDRE 2021

 

TASTING NOTES

This wine sits in a refreshing zone, although it weighs in at 14.5% alcohol. Fruit driven and a real winter warmer, a more ‘masculine’ offering. It delivers a wonderful mix of texture and flavour. Our intention was to create a wine with fruit intensity and high drinkability!

The 3 different grape varieties were fermented separately in stainless steel tanks and blended post ferment and press. The Pinot Noir and Grenache both had around 50% whole bunch in the mix and the Dolcetto was all de-stemmed. After blending the Babylon was matured in tank on fine lees. In January 2022 (after about 10 months maturation) it was racked off lees and bottled shortly after. Bottled unfined, unfiltered, with no other additives other than a small amount of Sulphur Dioxide before bottling.

ABOUT

"Koo de food" A blend of Macedon Ranges Pinot Noir (60%) and Western Victorian Chardonnay (40%). In various forms, we have been producing a blend of this nature since 2017. Pinot Noir and Chardonnay are 2 varieties which always create so much interest and discussion. We love the way they work together, a real family connection!

The two varieties were fermented separately and then blended. The Chardonnay was fermented in tank and the Pinot Noir was fermented with a small amount of whole bunch. Elevage was in a 50/50 mix of French barriques and tank. Bottled in late January unfined, unfiltered, with no other additives other than a small amount of Sulphur Dioxide before ferment and before bottling.
