Villiera Cap Classique & Nougat Pairing
We have paired 4 of our Cap Classique Sparkling Wines with Rose’s Nougat. The compatibility of these products is astonishing, hence the decision to make it a permanent feature in our tasting room.
Grier Brut with Rose’s Berry and Cherry Nougat
Grier Brut is a fresher, lighter bubbly which has the driest finish. It is a blend of Chardonnay, Maccabeu and Carignan. It shows character that is both floral and fruity, with spicy notes on the finish. The less sweet nature of the Domaine Grier Brut combines well with the berry/cherry character and the drier nuttier character of the almond.
Villiera Tradition Brut with Rose’s Macadamia Nougat
Villiera Tradition is the fruitier of our white bubblies and it is soft and well rounded. It is a blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, 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 Rose’s Almond Nougat
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, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. The nuttiness of the almonds in the nougat and the underlying marzipan character combines perfectly with the Monro Brut.
Tradition Brut Rosé with Rose’s Goji Berry, Almond and Rooibos Tea Nougat
Tradition Rosé is fresh and lively with an underlying berry fruit character. The light copper colour combines visually with the Goji berry/Rooibos nougat. In addition, the slightly acidic Goji berry complements the fresh, fruity character of the bubbly. The sweetness of the Nougat is toned down by the Rooibos tea and helps to create a great match.
