Emma Martin was only 11 years old when she wowed the wine world with her first Pinot Noir. Now, at the age of 16, she delights in bringing you the second remarkable vintage under her name. Specially selected clone 115 Pinot Noir grapes underwent wild-yeast fermentation and in line with Creation’s approach of minimal intervention, no fining or filtration took place. A mere 800 bottles were released, making each a collector’s piece.
Creation Emma Pinot Noir 2018, 13.3 Abv.
First impressions are lasting impressions and this one is an absolute gem! Emma has done good and this selection is going to put a bit of pressure on Dad! Pure, dense and much more complete than the 2017, this wine is deliciously opulent, expressive, complex and silky with pomegranate, blood orange, red plum and the most seamless balance and focused length. I love this wine and it’s precision. Very very smart! Certainly one of the best Pinot Noirs produced in South Africa.
