A Passion for Pinot

Ask Creation viticulturist and winemaker Jean-Claude (JC) Martin about his favourite cultivar and he responds without hesitation: Pinot Noir. He loves drinking it, he loves growing it and he loves making it! Small wonder there are four Pinot Noirs in the Creation portfolio and even less wonder that the wines win accolade upon accolade, locally as well as internationally.

“Pinot Noir at its best is an inspiring, elegant and multi-faceted wine offering intriguing complexity and depth. It has the texture and intensity one would typically expect from a heavily structured wine, yet a truly fine Pinot Noir is delicate and easy to drink. It doesn’t cause the palate fatigue sometimes experienced when drinking a heavy red wine. In fact, once you’ve had the pleasure of enjoying the finesse of a well-made Pinot Noir, it is hard to get excited about bolder wines. What’s more, it is one of the most versatile wines to pair with food – from fish to venison, goat’s-milk cheese to the tartness of fresh berries.  A winner for lunch or dinner.”
