Stellenbosch is a pretty university town, deep in the Cape Winelands.
On our visit there, we went to some of the surrounding wine farms. One of the best is Delheim. They produce great wines and their Spatzendreck has long been a favourite of mine. It is a Chenin-Blanc based late harvest.
We enjoyed a really good lunch of Cape Malay curry during which, a lovely man named Mike who works there, spilled my drink at the table. He apologised profusely but there really was no harm done.
However, he more than compensated for his mistake when, as we were leaving, he followed us clutching a complimentary bottle of Delheim’s 2011 Chenin Blanc Natural Sweet wine. Proof that good service, great wines and excellent food co-exist at Delheim – they certainly live up to their motto which is “worth the journey”.
