DRINK

Celebrate International Sauvignon Blanc day on the 4th of May with Eikendal Vineyards cheesecake and wine pairings – until 31st May 2018

 

 

Zesty citrus flavours, followed by a rich berry delight and rounded off by a sultry salted caramel enchantment. These are the delectable cheesecakes that are on offer at Eikendal Vineyards as part of its brand new Cheesecake and Wine Pairing Experience – the first Stellenbosch wine estate to offer this. Eikendal’s crisp Sauvignon Blanc pairs likes a summer’s breeze with the creamy and tart Lemon Cheesecake while the plump Berry Cheesecake fuses seamlessly with the Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay blend. The pairing ends on a high note with the estate’s award-winning Janina Unwooded Chardonnay, which brings out her charm alongside the decadent Salted Caramel Cheesecake. All worth every single calorie.
