Cape Wine Auction 2020

Wild Yeast finds Resonance in Elegant Wines

Resonance is a core Creation value. Co-owner Carolyn Martin explains: “In the Tasting Room it means that we constantly strive to create experiences that resonate with our guests, making their visit personal and memorable. In the cellar it is about echoing the sense of place: respecting what Mother Nature provides and enhancing rather than transforming her gifts. What originates in the vineyard resonates in the glass and this is especially…

For the Love of Pinot

The perfect Pinot Noir, how would one describe it? Flamboyant and berry rich yet elegant with delicate tannins and earthy tones of forest floor, this Prince of Reds has captured the affections of many since its earliest mention in 1395. Despite the ever-growing passion for Pinot this rather fickle grape remains one of the more difficult vine species to cultivate. It is shy and delicate with a thin skin and…

Creation Gin: The Joy is in the Detail

With the exciting launch of Creation’s first gins the question can be posed: gin from one of South Africa’s top cool-climate wine estates? Carolyn Martin explains: “The possibilities of what to drink with what you eat are fascinating. And so are the choices of an uplifting drink after one’s meal. Although gin is often enjoyed as an aperitif we also love drinking it as a refreshing pick-me-up after the meal…

‘Big in Japan’

With Japan now on everyone’s lips as the host country for the 2019 Rugby World Cup, and with our own Springboks through to the finals – go Bokke, go! – we thought Erika Dignas’ recent visit to the home of the Brave Blossoms to be an appropriate topic.
