Rhebokskloof: An Exclusive Fine Wine + Chocolate Pairing

Surrounded by stunning mountains on the slopes of Paarl, Rhebokskloof Wine Estate offers breathtaking views. With beautiful lawns, serene lakes, ancient oak trees, and the sweet scents of jasmine and lavender in the air, Rhebokskloof is a beloved destination known for its warm hospitality and a variety of family-friendly activities where even your furry friends are welcome.

This winter, there’s an exciting collaboration happening at Rhebokskloof, as they join forces with Huguenot Fine Chocolates.

Tasting treasures

Rhebokskloof has teamed up with expert chocolatiers to create a delightful combination of Belgian chocolate infused with the flavors that perfectly complement their wines. These unique hand-crafted truffles, only available at their tastings, resemble precious jewels on the tasting board and offer a captivating array of flavors.

Hey there! I want to tell you about this amazing tasting experience I recently had. It was so much fun! The event consisted of five different combinations that were absolutely delicious. Let me share the details with you:

First up, we had the Flatrock Sparkle. This bubbly drink had such a fruity flavor! It was paired with white chocolate and nectarine, which created a beautiful blend of tastes.

Next, we tried the Rhebokskloof Chardonnay. This wine had a crisp citrusy flavor with hints of fynbos. It was paired with white chocolate and bergamot, which brought out the unique flavors even more.

Moving on, we got to taste the Flatrock Red. This wine was bright and had a plush, fruity taste. It was paired with dark chocolate and blackcurrant, creating a rich and flavorful combination.

Then we tried the Rhebokskloof Pinotage. This wine had a sweet and spicy flavor, with a silky smooth texture. It was paired with both dark and white chocolate, black pepper, and plum. The mix of flavors was absolutely heavenly!

Last but not least, we had the Rhebokskloof Shiraz. This wine was a winner in my book! It had a berry-spicy taste that was simply irresistible. It was paired with dark chocolate, cinnamon, white pepper, and raspberry, which added an extra layer of complexity to the experience.

Now, let’s talk logistics. The cost of this tasting experience is R100. Not bad at all for such an amazing selection of wine and chocolate! The event is held daily from 10am to 5pm, so you have plenty of time to fit it into your schedule.
