Creation Sommelier`s Choice: Mike Buthelezi from Signature in Morningside

In this popular series we feature selected sommeliers from top restaurants around the world. Each chooses his or her favourite Creation wine, tells us why and recommends a matching dish. This week we welcome Mike Buthelezi from the eclectic yet elegant Signature in Sandton.

Mike says:

First a few words of praise for the Creation Merlot which I chose for this exercise. It has great structure and pronounced tannins yet is delightfully smooth. Its earthy notes combine with whiffs of spice, plum and blackberry and there is an intriguing touch of tobacco in the background. The finish is seductively soft with beautiful length.
