What a wonderful weekend, it looks like our summer holiday is certainly off to a good start! On Saturday we went to Creation Wine Estate in the Hemel-en-Aarde Valley and chose to do their Food & Wine Pairing. It was absolutely fantastic, definitely the highlight of the weekend. Our waitress was friendly, efficient and very informative, taking us through the eight Creation wines and the selected canapés that accompanied them. Wild Mushroom & Polenta Tart, Springbok Rillette with Cherry Jelly, Aubergine & Goat’s-milk Cheese Cannelloni and a Bobotie Springroll were just some of the delicious savouries on our tasting board. The wines were delicious too and even though I prefer white wine, the Syrah Grenache won hands down. I also enjoyed seeing so many of Jaco Sieberhagen’s metal sculptures which are currently on display in the tasting room. A beautiful setting and a wonderful experience, I definitely recommend a visit!
