Acclaimed winemaker Jasper Raats of Longridge will be showcasing the estate’s Top 100 SA Wines during a dinner at Rodwell House in St James on Friday, 24 August 2012.
The award-winning wines have been paired perfectly with canapés on arrival to be followed by a three-course dinner. Guests will be welcomed with a glass of 2008 Longridge Cap Classique Brut paired with chicken liver crostini, smoked salmon tartlets and an avocado soup shot.
For starters, the vibrant scents of the 2009 Longridge Chardonnay will complement the tempura prawns and spicy dipping sauce. The main course features a perfect pairing of 2008 Longridge Merlot with crispy duck or alternatively the Longridge Cabernet Franc with linguine arrabiata.
The sensational Longridge Edelgoud will bring the evening to its grand finale when served with toasted walnuts, blue cheese and apple slices.
