Saturday 15 June 2019 is #DrinkChenin Day and Creation, along with fellow members of the Chenin Blanc Association of South Africa, look forward to celebrating this signature cultivar in style. Click here to find out more.
The 2018 Creation Cool-Climate Chenin rewards with a bouquet of gentle ginger, tender tomato leaf, apple skin and honeycomb. It is a wine as remarkable in its purity as it is in its joyous complexity. This complexity makes it the perfect partner for a wide variety of dishes. In celebration of 2019 #DrinkChenin Day, the Creation Culinary Team takes pleasure in sharing their recipe for the scrumptious Pork Belly with Sautéed Spring Onion and Leek, King Oyster Snow, Charred Orange, Wonton Crisp, Citrus Beurre Blanc and Chervil.

Due to the small production there are only a limited number of cases of the 2018 Creation Cool-Climate Chenin Blanc left. To secure your allocation, click here.
Creation on the Move
At the end of May, Creation’s Jean-Claude Martin and Gerhard Smith set off for France, visiting top wine estates in the Northern Rhône and Burgundy. Gerhard reports: “We tasted some of the greatest icons, from the deep, brooding Syrah wines of Hermitage to the delicately perfumed ones of Côte-Rôtie. We also experienced the steely minerality of Puligny-Montrachet, the powerful elegance of Batard and the amazing kaleidoscope of flavours and structures found in the Pinot Noirs of Burgundy. It was truly insightful and incredibly humbling to taste so many great wines from famous producers such as Dujac, DRC and Grivot. We returned 10 days later, inspired to raise our own game even more to produce only the best that our fantastic site at Creation allows us.”
‘Fine Dining Meets Art’
“With its launch timed as a prelude to this year’s FynArts Festival, Creation’s new “Story” menu has much to offer. And complementing this creative food and wine art are exquisite sculptures, by Nanette Ranger, that are already gracing the Creation Fynbos Garden.” – Weekend Argus Reporter (8 June 2019)
