2019 saw a slew of honours for Gåte from the World Luxury Restaurant Awards, including Best Head Chef and Global Restaurant of the Year.
A new season is upon us and Gåte, with head chef Nicole Loubser at the helm, has unveiled its spring menu. The Gaiduk family, who bought Quoin Rock in 2012, clearly saw as much potential in the 25-year-old as Jan Hendrik did when she worked with him at his restaurant JAN in Nice. Loubser has developed an exquisite menu, filled with suprise textures and some truly world-class flavours. Each dish is a masterpiece in presentation, while the flavours transport you through a multitude of exotic culinary landscapes.
Ten estate wines, including two bubblies, are available for pairings. Winemaker Jacques Maree explains, ‘Our wine has the ability to pair fantastically with any food. We’ve got grapes from Elim and Stellenbosch, which give two different fruit profiles. The Simonsberg is your classical Bordeaux area, so the result is more new world, bigger structures and fruit forward.’
