CASE OF 6 BOTTLES OF CREATION SYRAH 2011
100% Syrah from Walker Bay. Dense and deep in color. A generously aromatic wine impressing with cherry and peppery spice. Silky on the palate, with minerality and complexity. Lingering echoes of anise and clove. An elegant single vineyard Syrah from the sought-after maritime terroir of the Hemel-en-Aarde.
