ENJOY gourmet food and good wine at the Ormonde Gourmet Wine Tasting presented by De Viswijf Restaurant in Jeffreys Bay at 18:00 on August 4.

On arrival, diners will be treated to pork belly and cucumber skewer, paired with Ondine Chenin Blanc 2015.

Kingklip cigars with apricot chutney and smoked paprika mayonnaise will tantalise the taste buds. This course will be paired with Ondine Chardonnay 2014.

For the fourth course, diners can look forward to a pasta tower filled with braised venison and a green peppercorn sauce that will be accompanied by Ondine Grenache 2015.

Then it is time for surf and turf: saffron infused calamari and seared rump with patata brava. Ormonde Chip off the old Block Merlot and Ondine Pinot Noir 2015 will be served with the course.

This will be followed by fallen ice cream with dark chocolate and Ormonde Chip of the old Block Cabernet Sauvignon.

The evening will come to an end with a cheese platter.

The cost is R300 per person. The dress code is informal.

Ormonde

Ormonde Private cellar is situated along the picturesque South African West Coast, nestled in the Darling Hills. The Estate looms over the icy Atlantic Ocean at altitudes of up to 350m above sea level.

Located a mere 4km from the ocean, the sea breeze graces the vineyards with coolness and moisture. This ensures ideal conditions for preserving flavour and acidity on the estate’s whites, but also moderate summer temperatures, extending the growth season, producing reds with depth and intensity.

Adré Rheeder, viticulturist with twenty years of experience, oversees the estate’s vineyards. He regularly addresses challenges presented by wind and the steep slopes on which the vines are planted on. The small dry land grape bunches are all handpicked into small crates and transported to the modern gravity based cellar, strategically built in the centre of the estate’s vineyards.

Here third generation proprietor Theo Basson pours his passion into each bottle bearing the Ormonde seal of approval. He places great emphasis on primary varietal character to allow the unique terroir to be expressed in every wine.

The most recent award was presented to the Grenache 2015 from the Ondine range of speciality cultivars. This wine was announced National winner in its class at the SA Terroir awards, once again earning confirmation that the unique style from this small appellation is appreciated and rewarded. Two double platinum medals, as well as four double golds, were awarded to wines from Ormonde earlier this year at the South African TOP 100 awards.

Ormonde Private cellar offers a superior selection of wines ranging from the flagship Heritage collection, the Barrel Selected, Ondine speciality range and the single vineyard “Chip off the old Block” range.
