Titled ‘The Facts & Fun of Wine & Umami Pairing’, the event was held in the Creation Tasting Room…

Rosé with Resonance

Discreetly pink, like the first blush on the cheek of a ripening peach. Rewardingly aromatic, with echoing scents of sun-ripe peach and apricot mingling with a titillating hint of cranberry and a trace of sandalwood.  Saturday 8 June 2019 is widely regarded as International Rosé Day and judging from the description above, the Creation Rosé is certainly worth a celebration.

The Semi-sweet Taste of Success

You can sense Kirsten Myburgh’s anticipation when asked what his first venture as a Creation winemaker is: “I’m making a semi-sweet wine; Hemel-en-Aarde has not produced a semi-sweet Sauvignon Blanc before and it will be a first for this cool-climate area.
