Discover EXCELLENCE pairings perfect for summer

Long, balmy summer days call for languid sundowners, and fresh, fruity flavours. So as we enter the year’s hottest month, why not try your hand at these intense EXCELLENCE & wine summer pairings, created especially for you by the LINDT Master Chocolatiers and Vrede en Lust’s award-winning winemakers.

EXCELLENCE Orange Intense & Vrede en Lust Barrique

The zesty, nutty characteristics of this ever-popular slab make it a perfect pairing partner for a wide range of white wines, thanks to the intriguing mix of acidity and citrus notes. Vrede en Lust’s flagship Barrique, a rich and complex Bordeaux blend of Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc, partners particularly well with EXCELLENCE Orange Intense, its fruity characteristics and lingering minerality elevating the subtle flecks of almond and understated orange notes of the chocolate.


Also pairs perfectly with: Wooded Chenin Blancs, Chardonnay, Viognier

EXCELLENCE A Touch of Sea Salt & Vrede en Lust Viognier

A surprising yet spectacular combination, this pairing is brimming with colourful complexity, and makes the perfect accompaniment to a technicolour spring sunset. The wine’s delicate spicy notes and subtle creaminess play off the salt crystals in the chocolate to create a flavourful and intense taste experience, at once both light and dark in character.
