Kaleidoscope Red

A wine that reminds us of chilly fireside all-nighters under the stars, when cheeky banter and silly jokes kept us warm. Made to accompany a good giggle and fuel the gees (a great vibe).

Integrated flavours of black and red berries, tea leaves and spice invite a sip of this easy drinking blend. The gentle structure, with soft tannins supporting a core of sweet berry fruit, adds friendly drinkability. Medium bodied with a well-rounded savoury finish.

Pig and fig braaibroodjie

Serves 4

30 Minutes

Print

10 slices of sourdough bread

1 cup melted butter

whole grain mustard

1 small red onion, sliced thin

1⁄2 cup mayonnaise

a small handful of chopped chives

500g streaky bacon, braaied

250g mature cheddar, grated

250g mozzarella, grated

4-5 preserved figs, thinly sliced

salt and pepper to taste

Braai or fry your bacon in butter until it’s done to your taste.

Brush both of your bread slices with butter. Spread out slices out onto a large chopping board or counter. Spread whole grain mustard on one side, and on the other side spread the mayo. On the mustard side, add some red onion followed by a good amount of both cheeses. Top it with the bacon, and a few slivers of fig and then a little more cheese and chives. Finally close your braaibroodjie with the mayo side on the outside and press gently.

Braai the broodjies very slowly in a flip grid over medium to low coals until the cheese is melted through. Be careful not to rush or you will have un-melted cheese in the middle.

The perfect weekend snack that's ideal for hastily planned braais, where the focus is not so much on the food, but on having fun. This will definitely be an instant winner!
