A long, sunny ripening season tempered by cool maritime breezes blowing in from the nearby Atlantic Ocean makes the Hemel-en-Aarde Ridge ideal for the cultivation of Rhône grape cultivars. Add to this the virus-free status of Creation’s vineyards, Cellarmaster JC Martin’s international experience and hands-on attention to detail, and it’s not surprising that the estate’s unique Rhône-style wines are so highly sought after, locally as well as internationally.
Up till now there have been three Rhône wines in the portfolio: the single-cultivar Viognier, the single-cultivar Syrah and the Syrah, Grenache blend – all earning accolade upon accolade. And now, in line with its ethos of constant innovation, Creation has released its first Roussanne, Viognier blend.
According to Creation’s Carolyn Martin the 2018 Creation Roussanne, Viognier offers an abundance of fresh fruit and floral aromas – ranging from fragrant white peach and dried pear to vibrant citrus blossom and spicy jasmine. “The multi-facetted palate zings with flavour: ripe peach and apricot enhanced by sprightly acidity mingle joyously with the creamy character of coconut milk and the nuttiness of almond. All in all a ‘bold and beautiful’ wine!” A mere 4 000 bottles are available.
