Last weekend saw Creation Wines participating in the 5th annual Hemel-en-Aarde Pinot Noir Celebration by hosting an event titled ‘Burgundy meets Creation’. The glittering occasion featured a brunch pairing showing Creation’s award-winning Pinot Noir portfolio along with a special selection from Domaine Philippe Colin in the village of Chassagne-Montrachet, Burgundy where he currently has one Grand Cru and nine Premier Crus.
Guests were welcomed with a glass of the crisp and elegant Elation MCC accompanied by a delectable spread of canapés such as Deep-fried Smoked Duck, Beetroot and Pinot Salt Ravioli with Cheese Mousse, Pistachio and Raspberry. A superb start to what turned out to be a feast for the senses.
This year the Estates event is titled ‘Burgundy meets Creation’ and features a brunch pairing showing Creation’s award-winning Pinot Noir portfolio along with a special selection from Domaine Philippe Colin in the village of Chassagne-Montrachet, Burgundy where he currently has one Grand Cru and nine Premier Crus.

“While looking forward to welcoming Pinot lovers to our Estate, this is also a time for us to reflect on the performance of our Pinot Noir since the first vintage was released some eight years ago,” comments Carolyn. “Our Pinot portfolio now comprises three wines, each brimming with attitude, style and that indefinable secret ingredient that pinophiles find so irresistible.”

Nicholas Daines: The Art of Creation Food and Wine
“Carolyn Martin takes the food and wine pairing at Creation to another level. The experience is a mind-blowing flavor sensation and the culinary innovation and imagination is nothing short of genius. . . . Creation is one of those places that make life in this world a little bit better. The quality of ingredients reflects the quality of the grapes that are used in the winemaking process. It is culturally exciting, culinarily exhilarating and run by people whose passion is evident with every interaction. Creation in my opinion should become a landmark for South Africa.”

“We have just had “lunch” at Creation, Wine and food pairings 7 tapas type plates with beautiful wines. I booked two days ago on recommendation, and on arrival there was a feel good factor as we drove in up the steep drive. . . . We walked into a bustling environment and [were] greeted by our smiling and welcoming waitress Inge. . . . The formula works. Views amazing! Expert guidance with expert knowledge from Inge. We loved the Sauvignon Blanc, Viognier, Syrah and unexpectedly the Chardonnay Reserve poured in large goblet glasses. . . . We bought 4 bottles of wine to take away.
