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!
In combining the rich gifts of nature and our unique terroir with the considerable skills of our dedicated team, Creation strives to reward the lover of fine wines.
Elegantly adorned in shades of garnet with deeper flashes of cerise as you swirl. Exquisitely expressive on the nose, the evocative perfume of Indonesian mace blending with enchanting whiffs of fresh raspberry and black cherry. On the palate this Prince of Reds spins poetry: velvety smooth and beautifully poised with great purity of fruit in harmony with crisp acidity and fine tannins.
