Creation Wines "Whale Pod" Red '16

Walker Bay

Creation Wines "Whale Pod" Red '16

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.

"Whale Pod" Red is a tremendous value from Creation Wines, a blend of young vine Syrah and Merlot. It is the type of red you can just relax and have a glass of. Pretty aromatics of dark berries, pepper and clove spice. Medium weight and silky, with more dark fruit and hints at cocoa on the palate.
