More About Our Unique Tasting
Benguela Cove will be running its offering for Seven Days of Shiraz and Venison from 11 June until 17 June, highlighting this cultivar as a winter favourite. For this, our chef Annie Badenhorst has hunted down some beautiful meats to add an exotic twist to our cool climate Syrah wines. Enjoying only the finest fillets, visitors to the tasting room can take their taste buds on a safari of the following combinations:
Moody Lagoon Red Blend 2017 paired with Ostrich Carpaccio
This popular blend is led by Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah that each takes a bow to bring this wine to life – structure and dark fruit provided by the Cabernet and those familiar spicy notes and perfume associated with Syrah. Ostrich Carpaccio is full of beautiful flavour adding a smokiness to the pairing that highlights the fruit.
Benguela Cove Syrah 2017 paired with Springbok Carpaccio
Fillet lovers will love the delicate flavour of Springbok. The subtle smoky aromas will also enhance the delicate fruit notes of this stylish wine, engulfed with a perfume of potpourri, cinnamon and pepper. Centre to that is fresh display of fruit set on tightly knit tannins that will complement the tender texture of the meat.
Lighthouse Syrah 2017 paired with Warthog Carpaccio
Warthog meat is very tender and juicy and perhaps closer to pork than beef, but it is certainly packed with flavour and backed by the same smoky nuances. The Lighthouse Syrah is the perfect companion with hints of pink peppercorns that dance on the surface. This wine is as evocative as the meat paired with it and will certainly leave you wanting more.
Syrah - also known as Shiraz - is a dark-skinned grape variety grown particularly well at Benguela Cove Lagoon Wine Estate.
