Creation Merlot Reserve '15

Walker Bay

Creation Merlot Reserve '15

Creation Wines was established in 2002, when Swiss winemaker Jean-Claude Martin and his South African wife Carolyn found a small, undulating tract of virgin land in the Hemel-en-Aarde (“Heaven on Earth”) Ridge, never before planted to vines. Perfectly situated for winegrowing in the acclaimed Walker Bay appellation, twenty-two hectares were ultimately selected and planted with virus-free strains of the finest varietal clones. The vineyards are located 350 metres above sea level and just seven kilometres from the cooling breezes of the Atlantic Ocean and right where whale migration occurs; this elevation and climate, combined with ideal soil types, create growing conditions which rival the world’s best. As registered members of the Biodiversity & Wine Initiative (BWI), Creation is also committed to helping preserve the country’s rich natural heritage by implementing long-term biodiversity and sustainability programs.

This Merlot is remarkably complex with a royal feast of berries and nuts complemented by whiffs of cigar box, cedar & clove. Velvety smooth and berry-rich on the lingering palate where the exciting layers range from dried goji berry to hints of graphite and wood spice. This bottle is normally around $40, so take advantage of this!
