The ‘Mother wine’ for this cuvee was a blend of Grašac (Welschriesling) 2019 and Bakator 2020 from plot Karaš, one of the best locations on the slopes of the Fruška Gora mountain in Northern Serbia, just next to Danube river.
This wine is used like a firestarter for fermentation, mixed with a must of Mezes Feher and Furmint in 2021 and later ennobled with the must of Tamjanika (a local Muscat grape variety).
In essence Babba had triple fermentation and in the meantime remained in 500L old oak wessels.
Golden-orange colour, hazy with high viscosity.
On the nose a herbal trace of hay, honeycomb, dried stone fruit, almond and orange peel.
Flavorus swirl of vanilla, cinnamon and 5 spices with an energising, spot-on whiff of V.A.
The palate is bone dry with bright acidity and well integrated, ripe and smooth tannins.
Regarding the flavour characteristics this wine has it all.
Citrus and stone fruit, resin with a stir of butterscotch, nutmeg and sunburned hay.
Overall a complex, earth shaking and ground breaking wine.
