Salt Aficionado Chef Craig Cormack will treat festival goers to exciting tastings with three Fleur du Cap Pinotage vintages paired with delicious nibbles, dusted lightly in exotic salts from around the world, in the Pinotage Theatre.
Prepare you taste buds for braised beef samosa, sour fig preserve and green mango atjar paired with Fleur du Cap Pinotage 2009 or smoked venison, beetroot puree, mustard crème cheese and cumin onion marmalade paired with the 2011 vintage.
The complex Pinotage 2005 paired with beef tartar, poached quail egg and garlic emulsion is also not to be missed.
