This dish is great at a braai. In my experience most folks have a their own favourite wine for a braai. Whether you like white, red or rosé, one of my top wine discoveries this summer is the Protea range of wines from Anthonij Rupert Wyne. Initially only available overseas, they fortunately decided to share it with us as well. In white they offer a Chardonnay, Chenin Blanc and Sauvignon Blanc – all with a cellar price of just R50. So too the rosé. In red there is a Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz, all with a cellar price of just R60. I love this kind of straightforwardness!
I like them all, but was particularly taken with the Sauvignon Blanc. Made of both warm-climate grapes (for wonderful fruitiness) and cold-climate grapes (for a lovely touch of green), this is my idea of a well balanced, highly quaffable pocket-friendly wine.
Best of all? The gorgeous bottles. Look on the left to see what all you can do with them.
