“Winemaking in South Africa dates back to 1659, and the making of dried meat products just as far back,” says cellar master PG Slabbert. “It seemed a logical local-is-lekker match to bring these two together for a unique tasting experience that celebrates our Cape heritage.”

It is the perfect combo of smoky spice and fresh, fruity decadence.
