Pinot Noir is the friend of good people with fine educated palates, the friend of lovers of nuances, the friend of those who love to share beauty.
This praise song from Baptiste Quinard’s ‘Pinot Noir is an Aristocrat’ is but one of many odes reflecting the passion Pinot aficionados have for what must be one of the world’s most desirable wine cultivars. Indeed, the Pinot Noir star has been on the rise for many a moon, with the wines enjoying ever brighter limelight from critics in the know.
Since the first Creation Pinot release in 2010, many prestigious accolades have testified to the elegance and finesse of the wines. Among the latest are a coveted 5-star rating for the 2016 Art of Pinot Noir in the 2018 Platter’s South African Wine Guide, and a gold medal and 95/100 score at the 2018 Decanter World Wine Awards (DWWA).
In celebration of Pinot excellence this coming weekend (25 and 26 January) will see producers flaunting their assets at the 2019 Hemel-en-Aarde Pinot Noir Celebration. Apart from communal festivities the 12 participating wineries will also host individual events. At Creation you can look forward to tasting their own award-winning Pinots along with sought-after Pinots from Europe and New Zealand.
