Tasting Notes Drink: 

Located below `The Little Tower of Babylon` on the steep hillside vineyards in Paarl, Backsberg are currently under the stewardship of third generation Michael Back. Recently achieving carbon neutral status, the first in South Africa, they are making considerable waves in the international market. Backsberg strives to capture the typical fruity flavours of this varietal; lemon crispness and green apple fruit, whilst retaining an array of aromatic characters. Ripe fruit, tempered by finely balanced acidity, gives a full mouthfeel, yet refreshing palate, with a lingering finish.

Pair With: Goats cheese, crumblies, creamy brie and blues.

Our Perfect Cheeseboard: Montagnolo, Vulscombe, Delice Des Cremiers, Peter’s Yard Original 105g, Clare’s Pineapple Chutney and Toasted Almonds
