Creation Viognier 75CL 

Creation was the first in the Hemel-en-Aarde with a Viognier vineyard. The vines are planted on the coolest, south-facing slopes which are ideal for the cultivation of Viognier. Joyful and vivacious, Creation Viognier has been likened to a walk through the fynbos garden in springtime, or Vivaldi1 s Spring Concerto! The 2020 vintage is no exception. The wine is delightfully forthcoming on the nose with pertinent peach snuggling up to the secret subtleties of ripe pear. These aromas find resonance on the smooth palate where apricot adds another dimension and blends seamlessly with crisp minerality and bouncy, well-integrated natural acidity. Delicious as an aperitif or enjoy with creamy pasta and poultry dishes.

On the outskirts of Hermanus in the highly acclaimed Walker Bay wine region, the rustic Hemel-en-Aarde valley winds along the undulating Babylon Toren Mountain. Follow this scenic road to the top and you’ll arrive at Creation, perched high up on the picturesque Hemel-en-Aarde Ridge. The translation of Hemel-en-Aarde is ‘Heaven and Earth’ – and the name says it all. 

As the last trap was removed, husband and wife team Jean-Claude and Carolyn Martin celebrated with a glass of their Viognier. It had taken a while, but now their farm was safe from the wildlife that roams in this part of South Africa. It was an important conservation step they both knew had to be taken. Since founding Creation in 2002, Jean-Claude and Carolyn have led conservation efforts for the area, becoming one of only nine wineries in South Africa to receive EnviroWines accreditation. It’s not simply an audit, but scientific measurement of every management practice.

Tasting Notes 

Pale gold colour. Abundantly fruity and forthcoming, yet refined on the nose with fragrant white peach aromas with a rich, creamy character. These follow well onto the palate and combine seamlessly with crisp minerality and well-integrated natural acidity.
