Paired

We enjoyed a wonderful food and wine pairing evening at my brother’s house where we paired a three-course meal with 3 different wines.

Chrisefranklin-126

The asparagus wrapped in bacon for the starter was so delicious that I didn’t even have time to photograph it! It was complimented with a crisp 2010 Chardonnay from Reyneke.

The main course was a lamb raan dish paired with Reyneke’s 2008 Cornerstone, a fresh blend consisting mostly of Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon. Yes, this did taste as good as it looked!

Chrisefranklin-127

We opened a bottle of Avondale’s Muscat Rouge dessert wine, to go with the grilled bananas and ginger dessert.

Chrisefranklin-128

It was really an amazing evening which once again made us realize how choosing the right wine and food combo can bring out the best in both!
