Chardonnay, Creation Wines

South Africa, Walker Bay

The beautifully fresh Creation Chardonnay is slightly more fruit-driven than the other with generous quince, pear and peach aromas and flavours, enhanced by fresh minerality and hints of vanilla.Well-judged acidity contributes excellent balance and a lively, lingering aftertaste. “

Producer

When in 2002 Jean-Claude (JC) and Carolyn Martin took up the challenge of establishing a winery in a remote corner of the Walker Bay Wine Region, they did so with the courage of their conviction. The 40 hectares of undulating land on the lofty Hemel-en-Aarde Ridge had never been planted to vines before, but recognising the vast potential, they set out with tenacity and determination to transform it into a model wine farm. No easy feat, but then the Swiss-born JC and South African-born Carolyn (née Finlayson) both come from wine pioneering stock spanning at least three generations and two continents!

Food Match

Fish, poultry, pork and game bird dishes work well with this wine. It works particularly well with creamy pastas and salmon dishes.
