Chocolate & Wine Pairing

/ by Stellenbosch Vineyards

New at our tasting room, visiting guests can now experience the ultimate pedigree through a decadent combination of pairing our wines with chocolates. A match made in heaven, this pairing presents our signature Stellenbosch Vineyards range alongside handmade chocolates, each complementing the flavours.

The pairing includes five wines and five delicious chocolates as follow:

  • The delicate tropical fruits of the Stellenbosch Vineyards Unwooded Chardonnay, is complemented with a tart strawberry and litchi ganache, set in a creamy white chocolate.
  • Playing with the nuances of wood and tropical fruit found on both the nose and palate of the classical Stellenbosch Vineyards Bushvine Chenin Blanc, we marry the flavours found in a ripe orange with a creamy white chocolate shell.
  • Keeping things interesting, we highlight the ripe fruit character of a true South African varietal, Stellenbosch Vineyards Bushvine Pinotage, with a playful combination of ripe banana and dark toffee filling encased in a milk envelope.
  • The spicy character of Stellenbosch Vineyards Shiraz is complemented by a mix of Chai spices set in a dark chocolate shell. This introduces a creamy richness to the palate, yet well-balanced by the tannins in the wine.
  • Ending off on a sweet note, Infiniti Noble Late Harvest is paired with the combination of tart passionfruit and lime is set in a white chocolate teardrop. The aromas carry through from the nose onto the palate where it is met by sweetness, hints of lime and the full roundness of creamy passionfruit.

The pairing is guided by our very knowledgeable wine ambassadors and available throughout the week at only R100 per person.
