To celebrate the month of love and our one true love, chocolate, we challenged Chef Westley to create a choccy-inspired savoury dish just for us, but in true Haute Cabrière style, of course. We were definitely not disappointed as we scooped up every bite of his grilled springbok leg and dark chocolate sauce, served with grilled peaches and crispy kale. This dish pairs surprisingly well with the vineyard’s Pierre Jourdan Bell Rose, and we enjoyed a glass or two with our meal as cellar master Takuan explained to us that you can serve sparkling wine with almost anything, should you be worried as to what to give your guests to sip at dinner.
Franschhoek, the unspoken yet glorious food and wine capital of South Africa, you’ve done it again. La Petite Ferme is a magical boutique winery whose vintages are more than a match for its resplendent views; and to round out their wine repertoire, they have just released their exclusive Barrel Fermented Chardonnay.
Haute Cabrière is one of my most favourite wine farms. Their Chardonnay Pinot Noir and Pierre Jourdan Brut are welcome regulars in my wine glass. In their most recent impressive culinary move, Haute Cab have unveiled a perfectly-curated summer menu, set to beckon wine-and-food-lovers to their cellar restaurant from across the country. We take a closer look at this mounth-watering food and wine experience.
