Creation Pinot Noir 2012

Creation Pinot Noir 2012

Deep ruby in colour, gleaming and inviting in the glass. The intensely fragrant bouquet shows a melange of red berry aromas, elegant vanilla and a whiff of wood spice. These follow through on the full-bodied palate where soft, supple tannins contribute to the dense structure. A superbly balanced wine with a lingering, memorable aftertaste.
