Blue Cheese & Biltong Salad with Pecan Nuts by Deliciously Lia
Blue cheese and biltong are some of South Africa’s much-loved ingredients, whether that is in a salad or if you are enjoying it on a nice piece of bread. I, therefore, decided to pair this delicious salad with one of South Africa’s much-loved wines which is the ultimate charmer, the 2020 Kliprug Bush Vine Chenin Blanc by Kaapzicht. With a golden crisp colour in the glass, this Chenin Blanc was very refreshing and was the ultimate winner when it was paired with this salad. With hints of apple and apricot on the nose, and a tropical but buttery smooth finish on the palate, this wine had a stunning peach and pear taste to it. As this wine is so refreshing, medium-bodied, and full of flavour, it eased the taste of the blue cheese, while having the remainder of the salad gorgeously stand out! Delicious good quality wine at a remarkable price!
