Jackie, our lovely tour guide was completely hospitable and patient while we all strolled around and took in all the beauty of the estate and tossed around ideas like “imagine swimming in that tank of wine”.
Following the wine tour, it was time to taste some of the wines we had heard so much about. We tried a wide range of their wines, and I learnt that I actually really like Chardonnay. After some delicious wine, and a couple of giggles it was time for the main attraction – the food (see what I did there?).
I’m generous with most things on Social Media – I dish out likes and lols like it’s Christmas… every day. I am unusually protective of rating a place 5 out of 5 on Zomato though. If I could give Cuvee a higher rating than a 5, I would.
From the minute I saw my starter, the camembert creme brûlée, I knew it would be love at first bite (last food pun, I promise). Yes, dear reader, Camembert Creme Brûlée is a real thing and it changed my life.
I ordered the line fish and it was cooked perfectly. The portion was generous to say the least. I have a raging appetite at the best of times, and even me being me, I struggled to finish it.
For dessert I had the citrus burst, which was just that, a burst of citrusy heaven on a plate. It’s really hard to pick out the stand-out highlight of the day, because the entire experience was just that good.
The food is almost too beautiful to eat, and it honestly tastes better than it looks. Absolutely worth every cent, I can’t wait to go back and I can’t recommend Cuvee enough if you are looking for a treat of a spot in the Stellenbosch.
Special thanks to Herman Agenbag for always taking the most beautiful photographs.
