Chocolate and Wine now at Lanzerac Wine Estate

Lanzerac Wine Estate have recently introduced a selection of hand crafted chocolates, from Chocolates by Tomes, and have had fun pairing them with their wines, and amazing cheese from Dalewood fromage.

For the really sweet tooth, there is a chocolate and wine pairing, comprising dark chocolate truffels and 4 wines  – Chardonnay, Pinotage, Noble Late Harvest and finally Honey Liqueur in a dark chocolate shooter cup.  For something different, try the Lanzerac Tasting Experience, which blends the best of the winelands – chocolates, cheese and Lanzerac wines. For the not so adventurous, there are individual pairings – Pinotage and chocolate dipped cherries, Noble Late Harvest with crystallized orange slices, Cabernet Sauvignon and Biltong and, of course, the Honey Liqueur in the chocolate shooter cup!   Totally decadent.

Lanzerac have also now introduced wine tastings and pairings down in the cellar.  A cellar tour with a difference.  Taste the Chardonnay, or the Pinotage while standing by the barrel in the intimate cellar, or do a full tasting in the working cellar, at the bottom of the steel fermentation tanks.  Have a chat with Wynand if he is around, and find out a bit more about the wine making process.  Normal cellar tours are conducted daily, at 11:00am and 3:00pm, and are complimentary.

Booking are essential  for larger groups, so it would be wise to call to check.

Wine updates: Great news for lovers of long summer lunches and picnics is that Lanzerac bottled the 2010 Lanzerac Rosé during August – still in the teardrop bottle, but this time with a screw cap! This 2010 Rosé is a blend of Merlot and Shiraz grapes and is crisp and dry and will be available at the tasting room in mid September. Soon to be released is the 2009 vintage Lanzerac Pinotage . This wine spent 14 months in French oak barrels, has great colour, a soft velvety middle palate and a lengthy finish – a “must buy” for all Pinotage enthusiasts.
