MAURER BABBA II

MAURER BABBA II

26.90CHF

This cuvee is based on Olaszrizling (vintage 2019) and Bakator (vintage 2020), with late harvested Mézes Fehér and Furmint grape varieties, as well as with Muscat Tamjanika from the Remete range. The special feature of this wine is the repeated fermentation in all three years, meaning the wine was “reborn” three times.

In Sumerian mythology BABA was the goddess of fertility and birth, while our ancestors prayed to Maria Baba when expecting a baby, for the child to be healthy. Since the wine was (re)born three times, there was really a need for the divine assistance of the “Goddess”. Relying on nature exclusively is risky for fermentation, especially when done three times. Complex, earth shaking and ground breaking wine.

Babba is full-bodied, with seriously high extraction, combined with a golden-orange color. Herbal trace of hay, honeycomb, dried stone fruit, almond, orange peel. The palate is bone dry with bright acidity and well integrated, ripe and smooth tannins .Regarding the flavor 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.
