Autumn Menu at Guardian Peak Winery & Grill
The autumn menu at Guardian Peak is worth a visit. The chef, Willie Mostert, is getting creative with venison sourced from a small, family-run business, Cape Venison. Grilled venison and apricot conserve sosaties with Cape Malay curry yogurt stars on the starters menu, bobotie spring rolls, creamy seafood curry, butternut, and goat’s cheese risotto. Next, try the grilled venison loin with cauliflower purée, fried polenta, sherry-braised pearl onions, and sultana-and-hazelnut chutney for mains.
Guardian Peak’s famous steaks also come highly recommended year-round. They also serve substantial salads, juicy burgers, lamb rogan josh, and roast pork fillet. A selection of desserts from the menu are:
- The Amarula panna cotta.
- Crème brûlée.
- Dark chocolate fondant.
- A lush pecan and caramel cheesecake.
The cellar is open daily for tastings (with platters), to purchase any of Guardian Peak’s everyday-drinking wines, and a selection from The Stellenbosch Collection. So you can relax on the terrace and soak up the views with a glass in your hand, followed by a memorable lunch or dinner.
