Creating Wines of Distinction

New Creation Menu a ‘Love Letter to Summer’

Moving away from the traditional festive season menu for the summer season, Creation has launched its ‘Summer Love’ menu. The inspiration is the ‘Secret Love’ project which is about unlocking the best experiences in South Africa. In the case of Creation this means showcasing their wines along with all their local suppliers’ products, transforming them into unique wine and food pairing experiences. “This positive project has an impact on our local economy and our local community and we invite you to enjoy and sample all that is good in the Overberg and Overstrand region,” comments Creation’s Carolyn Martin.

As always, the Story of Creation Pairing Menu takes you on a journey of discovery based on local ingredients and inspiration gained from the team’s worldwide travels. According to Carolyn the latest menu can be regarded as “a love letter to summer” – the Creation Culinary Team has developed a lovely light menu to celebrate the season.

To titillate the taste buds there is a welcoming glass of Creation Sauvignon Blanc. This is followed by the scrumptious Old Harbour beer bread with accompaniments, paired with the Creation Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon.

Next on the menu is Langekloof Trout Nigiri, which was inspired by an internship of one of Creation’s chefs in Haarlem, Netherlands at a Japanese-Peruvian restaurant, Maita. Served with avocado, soy mayonnaise, coriander and lime the finesse of the dish is matched by the finesse of the Creation Estate Chardonnay.

For the main course the team has chosen marinated springbok loin with a beautiful mix of berries served with goat’s-milk cheese and beetroot. The gorgeous flavours are celebrated with the Creation Reserve Pinot Noir, the ultimate summer red.

The dessert of raspberry, sorrel, meringue, rosewater and cardamom is the epitome of summer and perfect to elevate the crispness of the cool-climate Creation Grenache Noir, Viognier Rosé.

The award-winning Creation Reserve Chardonnay completes the experience, delightfully paired with local artisanal cheese, honeycomb and apricot and coconut gel.

Add to the lovingly constructed menu the warm welcome and scenic beauty awaiting you at Creation and a trip to this Hemel-en-Aarde Ridge wine estate near Hermanus really becomes an irresistible proposition. “We look forward to sharing the love of wine and food pairing with you this summer and as the festive season is almost upon us, we hope to lift your soul and create a sense of wellbeing,” concludes Carolyn.

    Dear Carolyn, My name is Elizabeth Nisbet, I am writing to you on behalf of "The Secret Love Project" South Africa. I'm a part time volunteer for this NPO in Cape Town and work closely with the founder of the project, artist Michael Elion. I came across your "Summer Love Menu" this morning by chance and thought I should reach out! :) You mentioned that the inspiration for this beautiful idea is the ‘Secret Love’ project. We thought it might be worthwhile for us to get in contact to see if there could be an opportunity for a collaboration of some sort... ? We would love to hear your thoughts on this. My number is 081 439 4515. The project is hugely popular and loved in Cape Town especially. I don't know if you are aware but the project also creates jobs for 100 homeless people by producing beautiful heart shaped stickers that they can sell for a profit. As a show of support, there are heart stickers on cars everywhere in CPT as well as official heart shaped sign boards all over the country to remind people to enjoy a wonderful experience, be in the moment and do it all with love. Over the years, thousands have adopted the positive and loving values and refer to themselves as Love Ambassadors. Our followers love supporting local businesses who share similar views, thus resulting in a system where doing good gets rewarded and enables more good. We hope to hear from you! Love, Elizabeth
