Babylonstoren Nebukadnesar 2019

Babylonstoren Nebukadnesar 2019

Colour: Deep, saturated dark ruby.

Bouquet: Intriguing fragrance of violets and thyme, intense blackcurrant and underlying cigar-box.

Taste: Superbly crafted with good balance of vibrant multi-layered dark red fruits supported by tight, well-honed tannins. Handles the oak effortlessly. Opulent yet sophisticated with a long, compelling finish. Satisfying now, but will develop and unfold its many treasures over time.

Kudu fillet or roast lamb with thyme, rosemary and garlic; rare roast beef or fillet on the bone.
