Creation: Memorable Wines from Mature Vines

“As Creation’s vines get older, so the quality of the Pinot Noirs they produce continues to increase,” says Tim Atkin MW in his latest (2020) South Africa Special Report.

Three of these wines also qualify for…

A Passion for Pinot

Ask Creation viticulturist and winemaker Jean-Claude (JC) Martin about his favourite cultivar and he responds without hesitation: Pinot Noir. He loves drinking it, he loves growing it and he loves making it!

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…

Creation among the Champions

. . . just like their World Cup winning rugby team, South Africa is firing on all cylinders. You just need to be selective and know where to look . . . As someone privileged with more than his fair share of rare and expensive Grand Cru Burgundy and First Growths, I can unhesitatingly state that the best of South Africa punches at the same weight . . . Trust me…
