Babylonstoren Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

Babylonstoren Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

Deep crimson red. Aromas of red plum, blueberry perfumes with hints of sweet tobacco and cedarwood shavings. A fusion of dark fruits, cherries and cassis with a velvety texture creates this soft, multi-layered wine with well-rounded tannins and a lingering finish.

Beef fillet, oxtail or even something as simple as a delicious platter of venison charcuterie.
