Creation: Unlocking Worlds of Flavour

In combining winemaking showmanship with culinary artistry, gorgeous flavours with irresistible textures, Creation on the Hemel-en-Aarde Ridge in the Walker Bay Wine Region enjoys an enviable reputation for their wine and food pairing. And when wine pairing guru Carolyn Martin puts on her traveling shoes, a wonderful tale of tastes can be told…  

Carolyn’s most recent culinary adventure first took her to Denmark from where she enthusiastically reported on two successful dinners: at Restaurant Hummer (which means ‘lobster’ in Danish) in Nyhavn, Copenhagen and secondly at Restaurant Goma in Odense.

“At Hummer the highlight was a dish called Torsk med svampebisque, blomsterk og sherry which included grilled fish with seafood mushroom bisque using black trumpet mushrooms. Garnished with nasturtium leaves it paired exquisitely with the Creation Reserve Pinot Noir.

“Restaurant Goma was ablaze with fresh proteas … at the same time I was struck by the strong influence of Japanese culture on Danish cuisine. One of my favourite pairings was the tuna sashimi with a fresh ginger drizzle which matched the Creation Viognier perfectly.  While in Odense I also did a trade tasting at Restaurant Marie Louise and was treated to some of their specialities. Good news is that Marie Louise has now listed three Creation wines.”
