Fynbos-flavoured cupcake wine pairing now available at Stellenbosch winery

Had your fair share of cheese or chocolate wine pairings? Stellenbosch’s Delheim Wine Estate has added a new offering to its popular wine-tasting line-up. The team is already famous for pairing dainty cupcakes with wine, but now they’ve introduced a new twist to the offering with a nod to the Cape’s famous Floral Kingdom.

The Delheim wine and fynbos cupcake pairing includes an entirely new array of fynbos-inspired mini cakes to showcase the wines of the eco-friendly farm. The flavours include a fynbos Cape coast honey cupcake with honey cream cheese frosting; the honeybush cupcake made with honeybush tea leaves; the buchu cupcake made with a tincture from Durban-based herbal lab Phyto-Force; and a classic rooibos featuring rooibos espresso topped with cream cheese and cinnamon icing.
