Grant Burge Nebu Cabernet Shiraz 2016

A new label for the Grant Burge stable: Nebu is short for Nebuchadnezzar, one of the Babylonian kings. This sits alongside the other icons from Grant Burge: Meshach Shiraz, Shadrach Cabernet Sauvignon and the Abednego Shiraz Mourvèdre Grenache.  58% Cabernet and 42% Shiraz. 12 months maturation in new and old French oak.

Grant Burge, Nebu, Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Barossa, 2016

 

Blackberry, plum, vanilla, leather, prune, 60% chocolate, moist cigar end,

Harmonious rich, black and red fruits jab and cross and weave in and out of straight line tannin that pushes through and lasts like an outback freight train. Lingering chocolate and a surprising blood orange citrus caboose. Ready for now or sometime in the next 20 years.

RRP: $85
Alc: 14%
Rating: 18/20
