This week the spotlight is on that seductive, appetite-teasing and well-loved cultivar: Sauvignon Blanc. And that’s not only in observance of International Sauvignon Blanc Day on Friday, the 6th of May. At Creation the favourable comments issuing from the vineyard team certainly indicate that the 2022 vintage is well worth a celebration. “The quality of the grapes was exceptional and one could once again see Mother Nature’s kindness to us,” says Viticulturist Gerhard Bruwer.

Creation in the news
This past weekend saw one of our team members participate in the Walker Bay Outdoor Festival. Daniela Hugo took on the 20-km Trail Run race with her sisters and friend as her support and ended up in 10th place. Well done to Daniela, who commented: “Hermanus must be one of the most beautiful places to run and what a wonderful feeling to be out there in nature, taking in the crisp fynbos air. Thank you to Creation for sponsoring the gifts and to Walker Bay Outdoor Festival for a fantastic weekend. Be sure not to miss WBO 2023!”
Winemaker Jean-Claude Martin calls this his “village wine”, produced from 11 different blocks at Creation, tucked away at the top end of the painterly Hemel-en-Aarde Valley. Deftly wooded in 10% new barrels, it has an engaging combination of citrus, pear, nutmeg and beeswax flavours lifted by acidity. A very impressive Cape white from a Chardonnay master. – Tim Atkin MW
