Pairing Waterblommetjies with Chenin Blanc

Since the launch of the 2017 Creation Cool-Climate Chenin Blanc (the first Chenin to be grown and made in the Hemel-en-Aarde) the demand for this limited edition wine has soared. Inspired by the purity and remarkable complexity of the wine, Creation Chef Francois Hugo has created his delightful starter of Open Ravioli Waterblommetjies, Roast Tomatoes, Citrus Cream, Coconut Shavings, ‘Suurinkies’ and Lemon Verbena. The fresh crispness of the waterblommetjies, the sorrel and the lemon verbena complements the fresh quince and apple flavours in the wine. The roasted tomato echoes the tomato leaf aroma while the coconut shavings pick up on the coconut smoothness of the wine. All in all a magnificent match.
