Dilworth and Allain Coup de Foudre Babylon 2021

A blend of 40% Macedon Ranges Pinot Noir, 40% Pyrenees Grenache and 20% Macedon Ranges Dolcetto.

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.

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!
