Dry white wine
Grape varieties: Olaszrizling, Tamjanika, Bakator, Mézes Fehér, Furmint
Terroir: Sremski Karlovci, Fruška Gora (wine region in Srem), Nosza hill
Our vineyards with Bakator and Olaszrizling grape varieties are situated close to the
Danube river on first-class terroir. 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 colour. Herbal trace of hay, honeycomb, dried stone fruit, almond, orange peel. Well balanced intense creation with good, well balanced acidity. The wine was aged in old oak barrels for 3 years.
