Creation was the first in the Hemel-en-Aarde with a Viognier vineyard. The vines are planted on the coolest, south-facing slopes which are ideal for the cultivation of Viognier. Joyful and vivacious, Creation Viognier has been likened to a walk through the fynbos garden in springtime, or Vivaldi1 s Spring Concerto! The 2019 vintage is no exception. The wine is delightfully forthcoming on the nose with pertinent peach snuggling up to the secret subtleties of ripe pear. These aromas find resonance on the smooth palate where apricot adds another dimension and blends seamlessly with crisp minerality and bouncy, well-integrated natural acidity. Delicious as an aperitif or enjoy with creamy pasta and poultry dishes.
