Creation Merlot 2011

Creation Merlot 2011

Multi-facetted, like a finely cut ruby in the glass - with a bounty of fruity, spicy aromas to invite you in. On the palate, rewarding dark chocolate and mocha combine with generous ripe berry flavours, supported by the firm structure derived from judicious oak maturation. Recommended with red meat such as prime quality braised beef or venison in a spicy, fruity sauce.
