MENU’s Wine of the Week. Creation Fine Cape Vintage 2017

This is a Port style wine made from Shiraz. We liked and enjoyed this so much when we were served it with dessert recently at Creation doing a pairing lunch, that we have made it our Wine of the Week. It is better than many of the young ports we taste in Portugal last year which lacked depth and complexity. This has concentration of flavour, sweetness and spice balanced with rich plums, black cherry and vanilla, good fruit acids, richness, and warmth from the KWV brandy added. It will age beautifully but is really drinking so well now.

Grown in 450-million-year-old clay derived Bokkeveld shale soils on the highest slopes of the estate. Only virus-free, lower yielding clones were chosen and planted at an altitude of some 290 m above sea level

The perfect match for rich chocolate and dark berry desserts. Limited bottling, R340 per bottle, presented in a black velvet bag, making it the perfect present for the port lover in your family
