First off, this was my first Come wine with me and I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed the evening. Where can I even start with this amazing restaurant “The Wild Fig”, everything was perfect. The venue (definitely an amazing venue for a date night, very romantic) the ambiance, the food and of course the wine.
The champagne was my favourite drink of the evening, maybe because I love a good champagne and it’s a bit of a weakness for me. Something I can’t say no too. The Boschendal Brut Method Cap Classique, well, what a way to start off the evening. Perfect bubbles, perfect taste.
The starter was well presented, the taste was amazing and paired well with the Boschendal Chardonnay / Pinot Noir. The portion was just enough for a starter.
Now we come to the main course, well to start off, I didn’t know it was Warthog that we had. I must admit, it was tasty. Was done just how I like it, medium rare. Again, presentation was stunning, and everything served with it just went amazing together. The Boschendal 1685 Shiraz just topped of the main course, paired extremely well with the warthog. Now I can tick that off my list of things I have tasted 😊
Dessert, to be honest I’m not a pear lover, BUT, this dessert was top class. Poached Red wine pear, WOW. That changes my view of pears 😊 Passionfruit is one of my favourite fruits, and that sorbet was a perfect match for that pear.
And then finally, the bubbles, Boschendal Brut Rose Method Cap Classique, Speechless!! Lol actually not, I can’t fault that anything, it was pretty amazing.
So, all in all, let’s go back to the beginning where I started writing, I said everything was perfect, do you agree?? I honestly couldn’t fault anything. Thank you for having us.
