With an icy chill in the Stellenbosch air, there’s no denying that winter is here. Along with the arrival of winter, we also welcome our latest Bunny Chow and Wine pairing!
A Bunny Chow is a proudly South African dish consisting of hollowed-out bread filled with flavourful curry and can now be enjoyed even more by pairing it with Blaauwklippen’s wines and speciality brandy.
This unique pairing is the perfect addition to a winter’s day out in Stellenbosch. With three uniquely flavoured Bunny Chows, all perfectly paired with some of our best Blaauwklippen wines, guests can look forward to two savoury flavours followed with one sweet sensation to end off your pairing:
1. Blaauwklippen Sauvignon Blanc 2018 paired with buttered chicken & asparagus in a herb Bunny Chow
The downy & creamy textures of the herb Bunny Chow and rich buttered chicken filling are complimented by the refreshing acidity in the Sauvignon Blanc. The aromas of spice, asparagus and delicate green herb notes give an extra dimension to the Sauvignon Blanc’s aromas of lemon, green fig and pineapple.
2. Blaauwklippen Shiraz 2017 paired with Springbok curry and basil-tomato salsa in an olive & rosemary Bunny Chow
The aromatic Bunny Chow of olive & rosemary enhances the exotic spices in the Shiraz. Chalky tannins and plush plum fruit aromas in the Shiraz also add to the levels of complexity in the curry, creating an aromatic pairing between food and wine.
3.Blaauwklippen Before & After Aperitif with Eatenmess in a choc-chip Bunny Chow
Plush berry fruit and creamy dark chocolate in the Bunny Chow are complimented by the fresh acidity and sticky-sweet tannins of the B&A, allowing for a lush enhancement of flavours and textured between the wine and the Bunny Chow.
