Last Saturday was the perfect example of how I would love to spend every weekend with gorgeous views, delicious food and amazing wines. Nitida Wine Estate is one of the most successful small wine cellars in South Africa and certainly one of the estates with the most amazing views situated in the Durbanville Hills.
The lovely team of Red Carpet Concepts created a very special and exclusive day for us at Nitida Wine Estate that started off with a meet and greet followed by a tour of the estate on the back of a tractor (and of course delicious bubbly to enjoy the views even more!)
The owner, Bernhard told us about his journey of the farm and how it came about and this makes you appreciate the wines even more. We then moved to the restaurant on Nitida called Cassia where we had the chance to try out all these wines paired with an amazing 3 course gourmet experience.
For each course, we had 3 options of wine and food to combine with as we please and my personal choice that worked perfectly with the beetroot, pork and duck for starters was the Riesling 2013. It is crisp, light and a deliciously refreshing wine, perfect for those hot summer days!
For mains, besides having the most incredible meal, my wine of preference was the Shiraz 2011. Personally I am a big fan of red wine and I loved the flavours of it and how it complimented each main course differently and deliciously!
For dessert the NLH Modjadji 2013 has fruity flavours and was the perfect ending to the meal with chocolate bread and butter pudding as well as a beignet served with ginger ice cream - devine!
Thank you to Bernhard and his wife for having us at Nitida Wine Estate and for letting us spend such a beautiful day with great company, food and wine! We will definitely be back!
