Award-winning winery Creation is responsible here for a most exemplary Rhône-style blend that is an intriguing mix of Syrah (Shiraz) and Grenache. The 2012 vintage received an outstanding 4.5-star rating from Platter's Wine Guide and this vintage is just as good. The wine is a dark purple, verging on black colour with flecks of crimson. Enticing aromas of ripe black olive are gracefully offset by hints of pepper. Full in body on the palate, concentrated flavours of tapenade, umami, black pepper and ripe plum are revealed. Springbok tartare, apple-poached pork belly and slow-roasted lamb will make welcome accompaniments.
80% Syrah, 20% Grenache
