Ask Creation’s Jean-Claude (JC) Martin what his favourite red wine is and he answers without hesitation: Pinot Noir. And that includes making it and drinking it.

JC’s penchant for Pinot dates back to his early career when having qualified as a winemaker at the Swiss Federal School of Changing in 1995, he made his first wines in a converted garage. The equipment was basic but the results impressive and since then many an award-winning Pinot Noir has emerged from his cellar. Among the most recent the rare, site-specific Creation Art of Pinot Noir 2016 which was allocated the coveted 5-star rating in the 2018 Platter’s South African Wine Guide.

According to pairing expert Carolyn Martin the fresh elegance of Creation’s Pinot Noir makes the wines the ideal match for a wide variety of dishes. In celebration of International Pinot Noir Day (18 August) Chef Francois Hugo created a perfect companion for the Creation (Estate) Pinot Noir. Click here for the recipe of his delectable Shimeji Mushrooms with Tempura Kimchi, Red Onion Marmalade topped with Spiral Potato, Candied Beetroot, Thyme and Violet.
The four Pinots in the estate’s portfolio are the Creation (Estate) Pinot Noir, the Creation Reserve Pinot Noir, Emma’s Pinot Noir and the Creation Art of Pinot Noir. Ranging from intensely fragrant and beautifully earthy to excitingly complex and elegantly spicy, each wine has proved to be an international winner in its own right. If you are particular about your Pinot, don’t hesitate to place your order now, bearing in mind that the Creation Art of Pinot Noir and Emma’s Pinot Noir are only available in limited quantities.
