Tasting notes:
'Creation's Reserve bottling shows a little more oak influence than its top wine, Art, but has the same racy freshness and Chablis-like minerality and tension. Richer, weighty, yet harmonious on the palate, it's leesy and concentrated with notes of cinnamon and lemon butter. Drink 2020-26.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2019, 93/100

'From a single parcel, 2018 delights with baked apple, warm cinnamon, lemon, grapefruit zest, wet stone minerality & vanilla oak flavours (25% new barrels) on broad & sumptuous palate. Made to last.' – Platter's Guide, 4.5* (93/100)

'Grown in a single vineyard, the Creation Reserve Chardonnay has a presence all its own – and what a presence! Vibrant aromas of fresh grapefruit and fragrant apple mingle with a hint of honey and a sprinkling of cinnamon. These are echoed on the oh-so-clean and pure palate where buttery nuances are beautifully balanced by the characteristic Creation minerality as a hallmark of freshness and finesse.' – Winemaker

About Creation Wines:
Jean-Claude (JC) and Carolyn Martin both come from winemaking families but establishing Creation Wines in 2002 was still a challenging task as the 40-hectare land had never been planted to vines. However, as Creation’s 60,000 annual visitors will attest, this spectacular winery at the end of Hemel-en-Aarde Ridge has something special. With vineyards at 300m above sea level and a long, cool growing season, their unique terroir is envied by winemakers around the world. Creation is committed to conserving the natural environment and is a member of the Biodiversity & Wine Initiative (BWI). They are also one of only nine wineries in South Africa to have received the coveted EnviroWines accreditation.
