Villiera Wines & Sally Williams Nougat
We have paired 4 of our MCC Sparkling Wines with the Sally Williams nougat range. The compatibility of these products are astonishing, hence the decision to make it a permanent feature in our tasting room.
Grier Brut with the honey nougat and almonds/cranberries
Grier Brut is a fresher, lighter bubbly which has the driest finish. It is a blend of Chardonnay and Maccabeu with a touch of Blanc de Noir. It shows minerality with a hint of raspberry flavour from the Blanc de Noir. The almonds in this nougat give it a drier complementary taste and the fruity acidity of the cranberries balances the raspberry character of the bubbly.
Villiera Tradition Brut with honey nougat and macadamias
Villiera Tradition is the fruitier of our white bubblies and it is soft and well rounded. It is a blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinotage and the fruit and soft creamy flavour combines well with the sweetest of the nougats. The macadamias add a buttery, creamy aspect to the nougat which ensures a good match.
Monro Brut with honey nougat and almonds
Monro Brut is the richest, most mature bubbly in the Villiera range and it is yeasty and creamy with more nuttiness than the others due to the age. It is a blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. The nuttiness of the almonds in the nougat and the underlying marzipan character combines perfectly with the Monro Brut.
Tradition Brut Rose with Sally Williams Turkish Delight (Rose)
Tradition Rose is fruity and gives a sweeter impression. It is a blend of Pinotage, Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay and the fruit combines perfectly with the Turkish Delight. The Rosé colour also combines visually with the pink Turkish Delight.
