It’s always a top-shelf experience at the Twelve Apostles Hotel and Spa. They spare no effort in ensuring that their customers leave still dripping with luxury and spectacular service.
One of the ways they love to show off is with gourmet dinner evenings, where guests are treated to a taste symphony of multi-course dinners with wine pairings.
The latest – and the penultimate for the year – is the event on 27 September where executive chef Christo Pretorius and sommelier Gregory Mutambe team up with Bouchard Finlayson winemaker Chris Albrecht to bring another one for the books at the hotel’s Azure Restaurant, with the ocean as a backdrop. Boutique vineyard Bouchard Finlayson is dedicated to the quality production of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc.
Feast your eyes on this menu:
Amuse bouche of Salmon Tacos, with teriyaki sauce, shredded cabbage, mirin aioli and toasted sesame seeds, perfectly paired with the Bouchard Finlayson Blanc De Mer 2018.
