The most delicate shade of wild primrose playing hide-and-seek with tinges of lime and rhubarb. A bouquet of gentle ginger, tender tomato leaf, apple skin and sweet melon casts the first spell. On the palate the magic unfolds with crispy quince and fresh green apple flirting with notes of tangy citrus. A cool-climate Chenin Blanc as remarkable in its purity as it is in its joyous complexity.
Yes, the second vintage (2018) of the Creation Cool-Climate Chenin Blanc has just been released, and you can click here to order it!
According to Creation pairing guru Carolyn Martin, the complexity of the wine makes it the perfect partner for a wide variety of dishes. In celebration of the limited-release 2018 vintage, Creation’s Chef Francois Hugo created his truly scrumptious Pork Belly with Sautéed Spring Onion and Leek, King Oyster Snow, Charred Orange, Wonton Crisp, Citrus Beurre Blanc and Chervil.

Who’s Who on the Creation Crew
To keep things shipshape at Creation requires the constant input of a great team, ranging from skippers JC and Carolyn Martin to (literally) all hands on deck! This week we take pleasure in featuring Urle Hansen who joined the Creation team five years ago as a cellar hand and has since been promoted to cellar assistant, making a very special contribution to the Creation journey.
In June this year it was announced that Urle had been selected as a participant in the 2018 Burgundy Exchange Programme facilitated by the Western Cape Department of Agriculture. Urle, who had never been on an aeroplane before, embraced this opportunity with open arms.
