Earthy wines from a heavenly source

Sauvignon Blanc

Pale straw yellow in colour with twinkling flashes of green. A superbly balanced wine beckoning with aromas of tropical fruit, elegant elderflower and interesting, minerally whiffs. These follow through on the full-bodied palate where crisp, well-integrated acidity adds to the allure and leads to a lingering, memorable aftertaste. Very good with seafood, fromage du chèvre and aubergine.

Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon

Light straw-yellow in colour, with glints of green. The invigorating, salty bouquet, reminiscent of the fresh sea breezes caressing our vineyards, is complemented by delightful hints of green fig. All in all a unique, terroir-expressive Bordeaux-style white. Recommended with fresh oysters and strawberry salsa, seafood bisque or bouillabaisse.

Cool-climate Chenin Blanc

The most delicate shade of wild primrose with tinges of lime playing hide-and-seek in the glass. A bouquet of gentle ginger, tender tomato leaf, apple skin and honeycomb casts the first spell. On the palate the magic unfolds with crispy quince and fresh green apple flirting with the smoothness of coconut milk in the background. A cool-climate Chenin Blanc as remarkable in its purity as it is in its joyous complexity.

Viognier

A promising pale gold, clear and shiny in the glass. Abundantly fruity and forthcoming yet refined on the nose with fragrant white peach aromas mingling with a rich, creamy character. These follow well onto the palate and combine seamlessly with crisp minerality and bouncy, well-integrated natural acidity. Delicious as an aperitif, or enjoy with creamy pasta and poultry dishes.

Chardonnay

“The beautifully fresh Creation Chardonnay is slightly more fruit-driven than the other with generous quince, pear and peach aromas and flavours, enhanced by fresh minerality and hints of vanilla.

Well-judged acidity contributes excellent balance and a lively, lingering aftertaste.”

Pinot Noir

Delicate whiffs of violet mingle with hints of raspberry and a generous pinch of spice on the nose. A terroir-expressive, gorgeously silky wine that rewards with delightful red berry flavours and lithe tannins on the well-balanced palate.

Merlot

Multi-facetted, like a finely cut ruby in the glass – with a bounty of fruity, spicy aromas to invite you in. On the palate, rewarding dark chocolate and mocha combine with generous ripe berry flavours, supported by the firm structure derived from judicious oak maturation.

Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot

Dense, blue-black in colour with seductive hues of violet. The sumptuous berry bouquet tempts with generous blackberry and blackcurrant aromas against a background of smoky oak. The palate is in perfect harmony with the nose: taut and richly flavoured, with well-integrated tannins promising excellent maturation potential. A Bordeaux-style blend in the finest tradition. Currently the only Bordeaux-style blend grown and made in the Hemel-en-Aarde. Wonderful with game and red meat. Decant before serving.

Syrah

Dense, deep in colour, almost black; flashes of royal purple and a spark of red – shiny and multi-dimensional like a polished garnet. A generously aromatic wine impressing with maraschino cherry and peppery spice interwoven with whiffs of violet. Lusciously ripe on the silky palate, yet with vibrant minerality to offer exciting complexity. Lingering echoes of anise and clove add to the allure. An elegant example of a single vineyard Syrah from the sought-after maritime terroir of the Hemel-en-Aarde ridge.

Syrah, Grenache

Dark purple in colour, almost black, with flashes of deep crimson. Alluring aromas of ripe black olive elegantly complemented by whiffs of pepper. A well-endowed, full-bodied Rhône-style blend with intense flavours of ripe plum, black pepper, tapenade and umami. Supple ripe tannins and well-integrated, natural acidity contribute to the appeal. Ideally suited to red meat dishes, especially Cape Malay lamb curry.
