The Red Table has launched its new winter menu to showcase Nederburg’s richly fruited and delicious wines.

You’ll find tasty soups, traditional fried fish and chips with red onion salsa and tartare sauce, the signature venison burger with avocado and caramelised onions, and hearty fare for the hungry like grilled lamb rump and succulent pork belly served with new season root vegetables.

Every dish has a wine to match. The slow-roast shredded duck served with beetroot, spinach and orange segments goes down a dream with Heritage Heroes The Beautiful Lady Gewürztraminer, or the commanding yet subtle Ingenuity White, a blend of eight white varietals led by Sauvignon blanc. The grilled line fish is superb with The Winemasters Chardonnay or Sauvignon Blanc. Or try the beef fillet with The Winemasters Cabernet Sauvignon.

Learners from Chris Hani Secondary School, Siphamandla Secondary School and Impendulo Primary School are benefitting from the holistic initiative whereby each school received two quality cricket nets, a complete cricket kit as well as a cricket coach trained under the Gary Kirsten Cricket Academy.
