Boasting a Gran D'Or at the Michelangelo Awards 2016, a double platinum from the National Wine Challenge, counted as one of the top 100 wines in SA for 2016 and a gold from the 2016 Vitis Vinifera awards.

The Nebukadnesar is the flagship red blend of Babylonstoren. This classic Bordeaux-style blend takes quality and class to a new level. A deep ruby in colour, it greets the nose with an enticing mixture of thyme and violet. Upon drinking this wine, your taste buds are treated to comforting spicy warmth and concentrated blackcurrant, cedar and black truffle flavours with undertones of savoury cigar box. The tannins are tight and well refined. Each sip finishes with a lengthy, satisfying aftertaste.
