Creation Bordeaux Blend Cabernet Merlot 2015
"One of Hemel-en-Aarde’s best producers" - Neal Martin, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
In 2002 Jean-Claude and Carolyn Martin established the Creation Winery in South Africa's sought-after Walker Bay region. In the unique terroir high up on the Hemel-en-Aarde Ridge, the skilled and dedicated team produces wine that aims to reward the wine lover with wines or rare balance, elegance and finesse. Indeed, at the 2016 Great Wine Capitals of the World Awards, Creation was named the Most Wine Innovative Estate in South Africa.
This blend has intense blue-black colour streaked with vibrant hues of violet. It exhibits sumptuous berry flavours of blackcurrant and blackberry against an oaked, smoky mocha backdrop. The palate is one of perfect harmony; compact and richly textured, with well-integrated tannins that promise a superb maturation potential. Would pair excellently with game, roast lamb and slow cooked meat. Drink now or cellar for up to 10 years.
