For some, the flavor and aroma of white wine is a sip of the drink of heaven. For those of us who enjoy a chilled white, these are some great selections to pair with your meals this Nairobi Restaurant Week or in general.
FRONTERA CHILE CHARDONNAY
With a pale, yellow colour, Frontera Chile Chardonnay has fruity papaya, apple and citric notes, with a hint of butter and wood on the nose. It has a refreshing, soft and balanced taste and is lightly sweet. It is an excellent company for shellfish, fish with creamy sauces, salads and white meat dishes.
CARLO ROSSI CALIFORNIA WHITE
Carlo Rossi California White is semi dry, with fruit-forward flavours of fresh apple, passion fruit, and nuances of grapefruit. This wine has a well-rounded crisp and freshly acidic finish. It is great chilled and can be consumed as it is or as a fantastic accompaniment with food.
CASILLERO DEL DIABLO SAUVIGNON BLANC
Straw yellow with soft green hues in color, Casillero Del Diablo Sauvignon Blanc has a fresh citric aroma with peach notes and hints of gooseberry and tropical fruits. It’s a gentle, round and mouth-filling wine with crisp acidity and is ideal for accompanying sea bass ceviche and fresh oysters.
BIRDS & BEES SWEET WHITE
Golden yellow with greenish hues in color and an aroma made of a mix of violets, strawberry and jasmine with fresh tropical fruits. It has round tannins and balanced freshness coupled with sweetness. The Sweet White is best enjoyed with Passion Fruit Sponge Cake with Honey Praline and Orange Blossom.
CASILLERO DEL DIABLO BRUT CHARDONNAY
A great Sparkling Wine to celebrate everyday! Due to its versatility, it can be matched with a wide range of meals from aperitifs to dessert. It is a great choice if you want to balance out a spicy dish or highlight the strong flavours in some ingredients like ginger or wasabi.
