L’Heure bleue – the hour of blue. That’s the french description of the period when the sun has set, so named for the wonderful quality of the light. Now imagine celebrating this special time of day on a Friday evening between 17h00 and 20h00 at De Grendel estate, as the sun sets over the Atlantic Ocean and Robben Island.
Imagine a canope in your left hand, a glass of De Grendel’s 2011 De Viognier in the other. With a tasting note like this, you can’t go wrong:
This wine has delightful apricot, dried peach and pineapple flavours that follow through on the palate. The barrel fermented portion adds a buttery quality to the balanced mouthfeel that finishes with a crisp dry acidity.
A great food wine – will pair well with rich pasta, chicken and pork dishes.
Well, get thee to the winery!
From November onwards you can make sundowners part of the rhythm of your week: a glass of exquisite De Grendel wine and a nibble in hand, the picturesque view of Table Mountain and a week-end to look forward to. What more can you ask for?
Friday afternoons from November
17h00 till 20h00
Tasting room @ De Grendel
R100 per person.
The vibe includes a welcoming drink by De Grendel Wines and canapés prepared by our guest chef. These flavour-packed bite-sized morsels might just be enough to replace dinner, depending on your appetite.
