In Celebration of Creation Syrah Grenache Blend

With the Creation 2015 Syrah, Grenache blend scoring a fabulous 92 points in Neal Martin’s report on South African wines, the Creation Culinary Team decided to wow the palates with a matching masterpiece! The well-endowed wine rewards with alluring aromas of ripe black olive elegantly complemented by whiffs of pepper. On the palate intense flavours of ripe plum mingle with black pepper, tapenade and umami. The delectable Duck Breast with Red Wine Jus, Roasted Butternut and Carrot Purée, Courgette, Trio of Beetroot, Shiitake Polenta Cake and Kale Crisp is a dish of many flavours, textures and layers – a perfect match for the intriguing complexity of the wine.
