Course one: Braised oxtail soup, petit yorkshire pudding, and chive crème fraîche with Remhoogte 2015 Vantage Pinotage
Course two: Steak and Guinness stew, creamy mustard mash, slow roasted root vegetables with Remhoogte 2014 Aspect Merlot
Stew is known to be a staple winter dish, incorporating all things hearty, rich and divine, so when I saw stew was a part of this amazing dinner, I knew we were in for a treat.
The first thing on the plate I noticed was the mash and root veg. From tender roast beets to purple carrots, each bite was more divine than the next – and I had not even tried the stew yet!
Once I had devoured the veggies, I took a scoop of my mash, dunked it in the stew and popped it in my mouth, only for my eyes to light up at the absolute richness that filled every inch of my gob.
The last bit I had left to try was the meat of course, and it wasn’t a let down. As soon as I started to chew, each piece literally melted in my mouth – exactly the way meat should be prepared.
Course three: Dark chocolate and banana brownie, bacon ice-cream and dried banana with Remhoogte 2014 Chronicle Cape Blend
Bacon ice-cream? Yes, you read that right. This whole combination might sound bizarre, but it could not have been more ‘right’. Bacon and banana have been pair on toast and on pancakes, so why not with a brownie, right?
Imagine the best combination of subtly salty bacon (ice-cream) with the sweetness of banana and chocolate, and there you have it: the perfect dessert. Oh, and mix in some pecan nuts, too, because – you know – a brownie would not be a brownie without some crunch!
Wine, glorious wine!
To touch on the wines, each one was paired incredibly well with each dish. The deep reds paired beautifully with the richness of each dish, only bringing out the flavours even more, and the crisp white on arrival started out the evening on a high!
All-in-all the whole experience was amazing. A wine lovers dream, you’re guaranteed to have a wonderful time. From the live music to getting the lowdown on all the wines you will be sipping on from the wine farm’s representative, it’s a great night out for friends, family and foodies to enjoy.
