The only hat trick we’re interested in involves wine, and in this case, it has involved the exceptional Boschendal Wines. We recently enjoyed our third event with them in our #TheArtOfPairing series, which saw Come Wine With Us members from Cape Town, Johannesburg and most recently Durban, come together to enjoy three of our favourite things: food, wine and art.
For the third event in the series, our taste buds were taken to the delightful East Coast. Our hosts for the evening were the Fish & Wine Co., while the premium art showcased at the event was featured courtesy of the Community Gallery. The esteemed artists of the evening were Jane Wolf, Corné Eksteen and Nicole Pletts. René Tshiakanyi’s delightful acoustic melodies filled the air, accompanied by excited chatter and bouts of laughter as guests enjoyed their arrival drink – a light Boschendal Brut NV MCC.
Just as you would expect from the Fish & Wine Co, the starter consisted of a crowd favourite: sushi. Salmon Sashimi and Prawn California Rolls were paired with Boschendal Chardonnay Pinot Noir 2017, while vegetarian guests enjoyed beautifully prepared vegetarian sushi. Keeping to their specialty, Fish & Wine Co. served up Grilled Yellowfin Tuna, marinated in mirin, soy and honey. This was served with sweet potato mash and roasted Mediterranean vegetables. Our vegetarian guests were treated to an Asian Roast Vegetable Linguine. Mains were paired with Boschendal 1685 Shiraz 2016.
After such an exceptional introduction into the Fish & Wine Co. kitchen and their way of cooking, expectations for dessert were high. Unsurprisingly, the Fish & Wine Co. did not disappoint. A unique rendition of Bread & Butter Pudding was served, infused with chocolate and berry. This was paired with a light Boschendal Brut Rosé NV MCC.
After being treated to four delightful Boschendal offerings and enjoying Fish & Wine Co.’s mouthwatering menu, guests were in high spirits and enamoured with the art and company that surrounded them. They say “the third time’s a charm”, and our third event with Boschendal Wines proved exactly that.
