Delectable New Pairings Offered at Uitkyk

The historic Uitkyk estate close to Stellenbosch has two exciting new pairings on offer.

For only R60 per person, visitors can enjoy a “Cat and Mouse” pairing in which a range of delicious savoury pancakes are matched with wines from the estate. The name of this offering is derived from the popular local legend of a cat staying on at Uitkyk’s manor house long after the original owners had moved on. The cat is a playful, tongue-in-cheek element meant to signal a relaxed approach to wine enjoyment. The pairings include Flat Roof Manor Pinot Grigio with a spicy Thai green-curry pancake; Uitkyk Chardonnay with a slow-roasted pumpkin and brie pancake; Flat Room Manor Merlot with a roast chicken, camembert and sage pancake; Flat Roof Manor Shiraz Mourvèdre Viognier with a roast beef, baby spinach and cranberry jelly pancake; and finally, Uitkyk Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz paired with a pancake stuffed with sautéed onions, mushrooms and Edam cheese.

Those who have a weak spot for the sweeter things in life will be tempted to try Uitkyk’s award-winning 10-year-old potstill brandy with a selection of top-quality Belgian chocolates and a slice of mouth-watering fruitcake. The chocolates, sourced from Huguenot Fine Chocolates of Franschhoek, include a vanilla truffle, citrus marzipan, brandy truffle, and a praline milk truffle. This pairing is offered at R40 per head.

The “Cat and Mouse” pairing is only available on Wednesdays and Fridays and must be pre-booked at least 24 hours in advance. A minimum of four guests is required to secure a booking for this offering.

The brandy, chocolate and fruitcake offering is available on all days during our opening hours and can be ordered on arrival

These offerings can be enjoyed in our tasting centre, on the homestead terrace or in the gardens.
