To keep is Human; to give Divine!
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…
It’s not only the beautiful bouquet, the fabulous flavours and the satiny texture that make the recently released 2016 Creation Fine Cape Vintage so irresistible. Each delightfully chubby, 375 ml 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!
According to Creation pairing guru Carolyn Martin this port-style wine is glorious with an after-dinner cheese platter. “It is however far more versatile and can be served with a variety of dishes such as the delicious Eggnog Cheesecake, Nutella Crumble, Gluhwein Jelly, Roasted Banana Meringue, Raspberry and Coconut Chia Seeds specially created by the Creation Culinary Team.” Click here for the recipe.
Creation Reserve Chardonnay: High Praise in Denmark
Our Danish clients and especially the Chardonnay lovers, please take note. The following description (translated from the Danish) recently appeared in the Løgismose wine magazine: “Intense scent of peach, apples and grapefruit, honey, oak and vanilla and a touch of cinnamon. Great purity in the taste with clear butter and cream fraiche notes, citrus and melon and roasted hazelnuts. Creamy mouthfeel and long, elegant aftertaste . . . It’s sumptuous!

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 a few comments recently made by our visitors:
“The night before our visit to the vineyard we chose one of their wines with our dinner, a Sauvignon Blanc and found it to be delicious. So we booked a two course lunch with wines for the next day and got more than we bargained for. The dining in this place is gourmet style and the food chosen for the wine rather than the other way round. The service is superb and you can feel how passionate the owners are about their wines, not to forget the food. This was a serious culinary experience not to be missed when in Hermanus. ” – ToMScotland (TripAdvisor)
“We visited Creation Wines early in the morning. We just did the wine tasting without having lunch. The expose on fabrication, history, was professional and the tasting showed promising wines: we had Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah Grenache and Elation MCC. The vineyards lie in an idyllic valley.” – ludo001 (TripAdvisor)
