The natural, salty flavour of oysters is enhanced by the refreshing, mineral notes of a dry Cap Classique sparkling wine. This traditional combination excels because of the ideal harmony between the oysters’ saltiness and the lively acidity of the sparkling wine, enabling the oceanic flavors of the oysters to shine.
Not only do the complementary flavours play a role, but also the juxtaposition of textures— the creamy oyster against the bubbly fizz—creates a symphony of experiences. Whether enjoying the wild coastal oysters of the Cape or cultivated varieties, a glass of MCC heightens the moment, encapsulating the very essence of the ocean’s abundance. So, when you next open a fresh oyster, be sure to have a chilled glass of Capriole at hand.
Goat’s Cheese Salad
The wine’s vivacious acidity gracefully cuts through the indulgent creaminess of the cheese, imparting a revitalizing sensation that enhances every mouthful. This invigorates each morsel, allowing you to rediscover the intricate flavours of the salad and wine with each delectable bite.
To achieve an exquisite pairing, consider incorporating vegetables such as earthy roasted beetroot for sweetness, or crisp green apples for a tantalizing, tart contrast. Furthermore, walnuts or candied pecans can introduce a delightful interplay of textures, while rocket or baby spinach establish a peppery, verdant foundation that harmonizes with the Blanc de Blancs’ mineral nuances. Ultimately, this amalgamation epitomizes equilibrium and unity, yielding a rejuvenating, opulent, and truly enchanting gastronomic experience.
Other cheese options are Ricotta, Feta, Brie, Cream cheese, Mozzarella, Cottage cheese, and Camembert.
Lemon Chicken on the braai
The vibrant flavours of Capriole emerge when paired with dishes featuring lemon, herbs, garlic, and sea salt. Our Capriole is made from a 100% Chardonnay grapes, the robust Chardonnay profile seamlessly complements the garlic and herbs, while the wine’s buttery richness enhances the savoury chicken notes. With its hints of apple, peach, and pear, Capriole harmonizes with the lemon in the chicken dish without overpowering it.
Furthermore, the Capriole’s own subtle lemon undertones tend to blend with the array of other flavours present, alongside the buttery notes, brioche, and vanilla tones characteristic of the MCC.
