It is 5h30 am on Monday, 18 March and at Creation on the scenic Hemel-en-Aarde Ridge the anticipation runs high. Yes, the harvest is in full swing, meaning that eager beavers move into the vineyards at the crack of dawn to ensure that the grapes reach the cellar in prime condition. But on this particular morning there is something else in the air …
Could it be the swishing of approaching wheels racing through the early morning landscape, or the happy sounds of children as they congregate to welcome the champions? Indeed, adding to the excitement of the harvest is the exhilaration of Creation hosting the first spectator and water point on Stage One of the 2019 Absa Cape Epic.
Creation Art of Pinot – ‘Dazzling’!
In his recent blog titled A Celebration of Hemel-en-Aarde Pinot Noir Roland Peens – Director WineCellar.co.za –writes: “The ‘Ridge’ at the end of the appellation is higher in altitude and offers a blue-fruited note to the wines. The newest of the wards shows lots of promise, the Creation Art of Pinot 2017 is, however, dazzling! It offers huge depth, power and age-ability with luxurious tannins and floral notes. And it’s worth the thousand Rand price tag.” Click here to read more.
