Imagine the temptation of peppery pimento spice mingling with aromas of dried apricot and peach, the nostalgic fragrance of Banksia rose… Imagine the lure of honeyed fruit, a hint of black cherry, the lingering reward of anise… And it’s not only the beautiful bouquet, the fabulous flavours and the satiny textures that make the Creation Fine Cape Vintage so irresistible. Each delightfully chubby, 375ml flask comes in its own shimmery black velvet bag, making the appearance equally appealing. All in all, a charming gift for putting under the wine connoisseur’s Christmas tree – if you can bear to part with it!
