Spice it up
If you’re planning a spicy dinner you should consider serving a Viognier. It’s a lovely match. New on the bottle store shelves is Oldenburg Vineyards Viognier 2015, the luxury boutique winery’s maiden Viognier and a lovely addition to their range of wines. This lively, apple-yellow hued wine goes particularly well with dishes with a hint of spice, peach and apricot, or dishes with ginger, saffron and coconut. Also really great with a shellfish like lobster or crab. Only 2400 bottles were produced. At R165 a bottle, it is only available at the cellar or online on www.oldenburgvineyards.com.
Disaronno, which boasts of being the world’s most consumed Italian liqueur – and as far as we’re concerned certainly one of the most enjoyable – has partnered with fashion power house Etro for its fourth Limited Edition bottle. The gorgeous bottle boasts paisley colours and prints inspired by the striking garments produced by Etro. You’ll find it for around R269 from leading liquor stores.
Chocolate eggs, family gatherings and special memories . . . Easter is certainly one of our favourite times of the year. Add to all of that a few gorgeous golden Lindt bunnies, and you’ve got a recipe for fun and happiness. We also suggest trying the LINDOR Eggs, and gold bunny minis, which are now available in a colourful perforated strip.
