The poetic pairing of Shiraz and charcuterie has long been celebrated, and notably so at Anthonij Rupert Estate in Franschhoek, as they introduce their brand new ‘Shiraz & Charcuterie Pairing’, which will be presented in the comfort of the Terra del Capo Tasting Room. This latest bespoke offering joins the much-loved Italian Cheese & Wine Pairing, as well as the L’Ormarins Methodé Cap Classique & Nougat Pairing.
Charcuterie’s salty, aromatic flavours and sweet, rich fattiness are naturally complemented by the typically bright acidity, bold fruitiness and spiciness of outstanding Shiraz wines – a partnership which this tasting experience aims to highlight. The Shiraz & Charcuterie Pairing presents three of the estate’s Shiraz wines, respectively from the popular Protea, terroir-driven Cape of Good Hope and flagship Anthonij Rupert ranges, accompanied by three expertly-sourced Italian charcuteries – Napoli salami, Coppa and Parma ham.
The pairing will be available as of 1 May, from Tuesday to Sunday, at a cost of R120 per person. The estate operates on a ‘By Appointment Only’ basis, so pre-booking is essential. For more information and reservations, contact 021 874 9074 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
