Having often been dismissed in the past as more of a novelty than a serious wine, South African Rosé has redefined its image in recent years to offer freshness and depth. A summertime favourite, there’s no better time to embrace this pink drink, usually best enjoyed in warmer weather.
Apart from being the on-trend wine at the moment, Rosé serves as a versatile food pair. Gareth Robertson, from Anthonij Rupert wines, expects that we will see the light vino complimenting more than just the summer weather “as people start taking Rosé more seriously and experimenting with local food.”
In recent years SA winemakers have been changing their techniques for making Rosé to that of the French, having now also seen an equal increase in demand within the country over the past four years, with many putting an emphasis on dry style rosés.
For food and wine lovers looking to indulge in the popular wine, the President Hotel will be partnering up with Anthonij Rupert on 26 October to showcase their finest Rosés in a unique culinary journey as a part of the hotel’s Wine & Dine series. This special six-course collaboration dinner, “California meets Cape Town”, will feature South African Chef, Craig Paterson as well as Maître Cuisiniers de France, Bernard Guillas, of the Marine Room, California.
Diners are invited to partake in a spectacular night of fine dining and enjoy a delightful ambiance with live music whilst the sun sets on the Atlantic Ocean.
The menu boasts an appetising array of fresh and flavourful dishes including a Kreef bobotie, prawn viskoek, scallop with cardamom hollandaise potpourri and dhania gremolata prepared by Chef Craig, king oyster mushroom nectar, 20-year-old royal ambrosante foam, goat’s cheese puff, truffle, and fennel pollen by the hands of Chef Bernard, a Chef Philip classic of hay roasted Karoo rack of lamb with de-hydrated berry crust, organic pea purée and rooibos poached butternut, and more.
The six-course collaboration dinner and pairing is available at R650 per person. Seats are limited so booking is essential.
