The Scent of a Wine
And now for Creation’s Signature Scent: The Perfume of Wine
Last week we posed the question: Do we also taste with our eyes? And the answer was an emphatic ‘yes’. But do we also taste with our nose? Again, the answer is a resounding ‘yes’. What better proof than Chapter 3 of our Creation Sensation Tasting Experience? Titled ‘The Perfume of Wine’, this course pairs the delightfully aromatic Creation Pinot Noir with a feast of flavour: Dill Cured Trout, Labneh, Sago, Black Garlic, Turnip …
It must be remembered that no less than 80% of flavour is aroma and the rest is taste. Aromas affect the brain in the hippocampus, the seat of memory, as well as the amygdala, which governs emotions.
The climate where Creation Pinot Noir is grown is of great importance. The cooling influence of the ocean coupled with the high diurnal range creates a wine of finesse, where delicate and tantalising aromas or scents develop over time. Deeply evocative and beguilingly sensual, our fragrant Creation Pinot Noir has now inspired The Perfume of Wine, Creation’s Signature Scent. It is a construct of seven meticulously sourced essential oils, with at its heart a precious secret component. Among the aromas you will discover are:
- Ginger: A high note to create frisson and elevate the senses.
- Violet leaf: A heart note with enchanting floral and ozonic notes to soothe the senses.
- Vetiver: A base note, earthy and fresh as a forest, a tranquillity aroma.
