A TASTE OF SA
Every year Stellenbosch Hills celebrates Heritage Month with its popular Local is Lekker Biltong & Wine Pairing. This includes the Kudu Droëwors & Stellenbosch Hills Cabernet Sauvignon pairing: subtle, yet rich game flavours partner well with notes of ripe black fruit. For 2018, they’ve added something sweet paired with their Muscat de Hambourg, which is “explosively fragrant, with aromas and flavours of candyfloss, boiled sweets, rose petals and violets”. Choose between a plaited, sweet-and-crunchy koeksister or the Cape Malay-style koe’sister, a spiced, deep-fried dough-ball dipped in boiling hot syrup and rolled in desiccated coconut. Exclusively for the month of September. Opening times: Monday-friday, 9am-5pm; Saturdays: 10am-3pm. Ticket prices: R75 per person. Venue: Stellenbosch Hills, R310 and Vlottenburg Rd, just outside Stellenbosch. Tel: 021 881 3828/9.
