Wine and chocolate can be an ideal match, and to help you with your selection our winemakers Toni and Michael were only too happy to spend an afternoon checking (and rechecking, and rechecking…) the Bright Chocolate varieties which paired best with wines in your Winter/Spring Taster Pack.
Our winemakers enjoyed the chocolates’ rich, complex flavours, and after careful consideration they came up with the following suggested pairings:
Madagascar 72% – Imbued with fruity and citrus intensity that matches well with our Tobacco Road Sauvignon Blanc, Valley Selection Pinot Gris and Ballerina Canopy Chardonnay.
Dominican 70% – Soft yet rich in flavour, with hints of tobacco, coffee and nutmeg notes, this chocolate is a good pair with our Valley Selection Pinot Gris and Tobacco Road Tempranillo.
Ecuador 72% - An earthy chocolate with hints of cinnamon, honey and vanilla, this chocolate is a good match with our Limited Release Petit Manseng, Ballerina Canopy Shiraz and Ballerina Canopy Durif.
Tanzania 80% - Fruity flavours of lime, berries and plum with notes of honey and coffee see this chocolate pair well with our Tobacco Road Cabernet Sauvignon and Ballerina Canopy Durif.
Of course, these are their suggestions – you might like to create your own chocolate and wine pairing!
