Issued by: Gudrun Clark Communications on behalf of: Distell

Fleur du Cap Unfiltered Merlot with green olive pesto, smoked prosciutto, salted fudge, sun dried tomatoes with Gouda and dolmades

Discover a unique new Fleur du Cap wine tasting experience, pairing wines with artisanal, salted delicacies offered daily at Die Bergkelder where handmade morsels meld seamlessly with hands-off, naturally crafted wines.

With close affinity to their natural surroundings, Fleur du Cap wines lend themselves perfectly to pairings with nature’s gifts of unrefined salts. Using locally sourced savoury treats, prepared using traditional methods such as curing with salt, the new Fleur du Cap tasting experience accentuates the inherent flavours of each superbly balanced wine.

Served on salt blocks, the daily savoury parings on offer at Die Bergkelder include five Fleur du Cap wines. The refreshingUnfiltered Sauvignon Blanc is partnered with sulphuric salt and dolmades made with wild rice, followed by the Unfiltered Chardonnay paired with rich green olive pesto and Black Lava Salt from the lava pools of Hawaii. The robust Unfiltered Merlotcreates a sublime pairing with flavoursome prosciutto or chicken liver pâté with caramelised Onions and Murray River salt, whilst the elegant Fleur du Cap Unfiltered Cabernet Sauvignon is paired with full flavoured sun dried tomatoes and six month matured Gouda cheese and Khoisan salt. To round off this unique tasting experience, Fleur du Cap Noble Late Harvest paired with delicious Maldon salted fudge, will have your taste buds wanting for more.
The Fleur du Cap Wine and Salt tastings are offered daily at R75 per person from Mondays to Saturdays between 09h00 and 16h30 at Die Bergkelder in Stellenbosch. For bookings, contact Nadia Ferreira on Tel: 021 809 8025 or
