Creation Rose 2018

Regular price $24.95

Tasting Notes:  Discreetly pink, like the first blush on the cheek of a ripening peach. Rewardingly aromatic, with echoing scents of sun-ripe peach and apricot mingling with a titillating hint of cranberry and a trace of sandalwood. On the well-balanced palate cool-climate freshness is the first impression. The stone-fruit follows through, beautifully offset by a mélange of berry fruit. Vivaciously crisp yet soft and round with a gently persisting nuance of butter on the lingering aftertaste.

Vineyards Situated high up the Hemel-en-Aarde Ridge near Hermanus, Creation’s vines climb the steep hills of Babylon Toren Mountain to a lofty altitude of 350 metres above sea level. Here they bask in generous sunlight, flourish in 450-million-year-old clay loam soils with decomposed Bokkeveld shale and dance in the cool breezes blowing in from the nearby Atlantic Ocean. During the annual growth period, temperatures rarely exceed 30° C, while the cool night index throughout the year is 12° C lower than the day-time temperature.These factors result in full-flavoured grapes of outstanding quality, allowing for the creation of complex wines with length and depth.
