At Creation on the lofty Hemel-en-Aarde Ridge, the 2018 harvest has started on schedule – no early surprises – and the entire estate radiates excitement. However, when approached for inside information, Cellarmaster Jean-Claude (JC) Martin simply smiles … from ear to ear …
A truly exciting happening this harvest will be the picking of Creation’s maiden Roussanne vintage. This is part of the ongoing evolution at Creation and it’s always fascinating to see what nature delivers, so watch this space!
Creation in 5 Delectable Chapters
With the 2018 harvest in full swing there’s never a dull moment in either the vineyard or the cellar. The members of the Creation Culinary Team have been equally busy, planning a brand-new The Story of Creation pairing menu to celebrate the harvest. This is arguably the most popular of Creation’s amazing eight pairing options and the new menu comprises five tantalising courses.
Creation pairing guru Carolyn Martin elaborates: “Every Creation wine tells a distinctive story and we believe that context plays an important part in the enjoyment of wine. Each wine presented in The Story of Creation enhances an artfully created small-plate dish and thus the Creation narrative unfolds with each delectable chapter.” All in all a multi-faceted pairing experience.

Creation Chardonnay: ‘Classic Beauty’
Creation Wines Brand Ambassador Nkulu Mkhwanazi recently presented a vertical Creation Chardonnay tasting at the Shamase Wine Club in Johannesburg, Sandton. Vintages from 2012 to 2016 were tasted and due to the exclusivity of the wines only 13 wine lovers could attend the event. Among the many favourable comments have been ‘Classic Beauty’ (for the 2012 vintage) and ‘Elegant and Luscious’ (for the 2013 vintage). The 2016 vintage was described as ‘Fresh, youthful and expressive palate. Fine concentration and balance’. Click here to read more about this exceptional tasting.
