Wine and Cheese Pairings at Lanzerac
“Wine and cheese pairings are so commonplace that it almost seems instinctual to pair them together. Given their almost universal pairing it should come as no surprise that they have both been around for a very long time.” – Anon
What better way to beat the winter blues than spending the day at the picturesque Lanzerac Wine Estate whilst indulging in a decadent wine and cheese pairing. Winner of the KLINK Award for the Best Deli on a Wine Farm, visitors to the historic estate during the month of July can sample a selection of the finest cheeses which have been carefully paired with wines from the Premium range.
Lanzerac’s Premium wine tastings consist of five generous pours of the recently released Sauvignon Blanc 2016, Chardonnay 2014 (Michelangelo Gold Medal winner), Merlot 2014, Pinotage 2013 (Michelangelo Trophy winner for Best Pinotage) and the Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 (Veritas Gold Medal winner).
The platter consists of a selection of eight local cheeses, served with homemade preserves, chutney biscuits and breads. The appetizing selection of cheeses include the Dalewood Languedoc, Dalewood Huguenot, Cumin Boerenkaas, Brie Superlatif, Healey’s Farmhouse Mature Cheddar, Karoo Blue, Karoo Swiss and Pépé Charlot Artisanal Goats Cheese.
The platter costs R195 for two people which includes the cheese platter to share plus two premium wine tastings.
Available seven days a week between 09h00-16h00 daily, this winter warmer will be available until 31 July 2016. To book for your Cheese & Wine experience contact the Lanzerac Tasting Room on 021 886 5641 or email.
