A cosy antidote to the cold

If you’re heading down to the Cape soon, here’s one to add to your must-do list, as Spier launched their new seasonal sips & soups tasting.

Visitors can indulge in the new ‘Seasonal Sips & Soups’ Tasting, which pairs four of Spier’s award-winning wines with four comforting dishes, designed to warm guests from within. This tasting celebrates the transition in seasons, making it a perfect escape from the cold, and it features a delightful journey through four curated pairings, starting with a creamy pea velouté.

This silky smooth pea soup, topped with whipped goat cheese and a crispy parmesan tuile, pairs perfectly with Spier’s Good Natured Sauvignon Blanc. This organic wine reflects Spier’s dedication to regenerative and socially conscious business.

Guests will then savour the earthy forest mushroom consommé, a rich, flavourful broth brimming with sautéed forest mushrooms and a subtle touch of truffle espuma, complemented beautifully by Spier’s 21 Gables Chenin Blanc. This pairing enhances the earthy depths of both the soup and the wine.

The journey continues with a decadent Stilton velouté, a creamy cauliflower soup infused with Stilton Blue cheese, served with a sable biscuit topped with fresh garden herbs and tangy pickled onion. It is expertly complemented by Spier’s Seaward Chardonnay, which highlights the dish with its creamy texture and vibrant acidity.

For a sweet send-off, the tasting concludes with a rich chocolate tart, a delicious dessert combining intense dark chocolate flavours with a sprinkle of Maldon sea salt, served with Spier’s award-winning First Stone Organic Red.

The Seasonal Sips & Soups tasting is available at Spier’s Wine Tasting for R170 per person from 1 May to 30 September 2024. Reservations are recommended. Contact +27 (21) 809 1984 for more info or make your booking online.
