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.
Best enjoyed with Black Forest ham and Stanford cheese with wonderful ageing potential of up to 10 years.
46% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Merlot, 15% Petit Verdot, 12% Cabernet Franc and 9% Malbec
