This is like the Supermodel of wine pairings, because it’s something you WILL get out of bed for : L’Ormarins MCC and nougat pairings, now offered at Anthonij Rupert Wine Estate outside Franschhoek.
The estate’s three gorgeous L’Ormarins Methodé Cap Classiques (MCC) are each matched with hand-made nougat creating blissful new food and wine marriages. Traditionally sparkling wine and champagne are enjoyed as apéritif with oysters, caviar and strawberries, but this unique pairing will blast your tastebuds into the stratosphere. Each nougat has been meticulously designed to enhance certain characteristics in its designated MCC partner.
L’Ormarins Brut NV pairs with a delicious morsel of Cassata nougat, based on the traditional Italian dessert. Candied fruit, vanilla and almond perfectly suit the fruity, toasty notes of the Brut. The beautiful blush pink Brut Rosé finds its match in a cherry, cranberry and rose nougat, which amplifies similar flavours in the Rosé. Completing the trio is the stately, recently released Blanc de Blancs which is a match made in heaven with the toasted pecan, orange and fleur de sel (salt) nougat. Sweet and savoury offer endless fun experimental possibilities!
The tasting is presented in a relaxed atmosphere in the comfort of the luxurious Anthonij Rupert Tasting Room, at a mere R60 per person.
Have lunch at the fabulous Terra del Capo Antipasto Bar on the estate before or afterwards, and consider it a day well spent!
