Last week saw the long-awaited Nice Visits Creation dinner taking place in the Tasting Room. One of the highlights of the event was the newly released Elation Méthode Cap Classique.
The maiden Elation MCC is an exquisitely crafted blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Classified ‘Brut Nature’, the wine contains only natural residual sugar and is delightfully crisp with a generous dash of exuberance and an elegant touch of finesse. Pour a glass and watch the tiny beads perform a lively cabaret. Then take a sniff … the gentlest aromas of lemon blossom and dried apple emerge, followed by wild strawberry and hints of fresh brioche. On the palate well-integrated flavours of grapefruit and dried apple are accompanied by fresh minerality – elusively savoury like wet pebbles on a beach. An utter joy to the senses, the Elation MCC is the perfect way to celebrate with family and friends over the coming Festive Season.

Giving Back to the Community
A big thanks once again to those supporting the Hemel-en-Aarde Community Project. We were lucky enough to get a sponsorship from Ford Hermanus to fund a bus for transporting the children. Our aim is to raise R600 000 and now the sum of only R170 000 remains to be raised! Should you want to make a donation towards changing these children’s lives, please contact Elizabeth from the Pebbles Project at: email@example.com.
Welcome to Our Little Piece of Paradise
Situated some 18 km from the coastal resort of Hermanus, Creation is more than a wine farm; it is a glorious destination where a warm welcome awaits young and old. Click here to make a reservation. Here are some comments recently made by our visitors:
We went for a tasting menu with different wines to accompany each course. The quality of the food and wines were just perfect! Our server was knowledgeable and helpful and I really cannot recommend this too highly. We went on the ‘wine safari’ vehicle which collected us and dropped us at our hotel in Hermanus – driving would have been impossible.

We visited Creation on November 9th 2016. We had the 8 course Tapas menu and really enjoyed it. The quality of the food courses was excellent. The accompanying wines kept coming with a different wine taste for each course. Eight wines for eight courses. We spent a very happy afternoon at Creation. With everything from welcome to departure being memorable.

We pre-booked the tapas and wine pairing and we were not disappointed. After a sticky start – probably due to not listening – the tasting unfurled as we relaxed. Some beautiful food courses and great wine matches. 2 hours just flew by. The owners were with friends at a nearby table and seemed completely relaxed with the way everything operated. The location is just so beautiful. Everything was perfect!
