BACK by popular demand is Polkadraai-and-Popcorn, the ultimate anti-serious wine pairing at Stellenbosch Hills. When first launched, Polkadraai-and-Popcorn went off the charts. Finally, here was a line-up everyone could relate to: fun, accessible Polkadraai wines served with guzzle-worthy popcorn.
Now, like the sunny weather, it’s back and Polkadraai has again teamed up with yummy Guzzle & Wolf Gourmet Popcorn. It’s the perfect reason to rustle up your posse and head out to the Stellenbosch winelands. For the new Polkadraai-and-Popcorn series, which runs until April 30, 2020, the moreish superstars will be:
- Polkadraai Sauvignon Blanc Brut, a refreshing drier-style bubbly notable for lively fruit flavours and a kissing-crisp acidity. There’s a flavoursome reminder of tropical fruit with hints of litchis, gooseberries and green figs, and long, lingering finish. The Brut is served with Guzzle & Wolf’s Coconut & Chia Seeds Popcorn.
- The Polkadraai Chenin Blanc/Sauvignon Blanc, a wine that’s at its best when chilled. In a glass, it’s star bright with a green tinge. The aroma recalls grassiness while the taste is of tropical fruit. The popcorn partner here is Salted Caramel.
- The Polkadraai Rosé is made with Shiraz and in a drier style. Upon savouring the wine, you’re likely to be reminded of red berries and flower petals. There’s a hint of sweet melon and stone fruit too. It’s accompanied in this tasting by the unique Cinnamon & Pretzel Popcorn.
- The Polkadraai Pinotage/Merlot, a wine that’s deliriously delicious. Think berry fruit. It’s the perfect match with the Dark Chocolate Popcorn.
The Polkadraai-and-Popcorn tasting costs R55 per person. So affordable, you just have to make it a group activity. Bring your friends and family and “pop in” for the wine (and popcorn) experience of the season. Each session runs for about 30 minutes, but there’s also plenty of opportunity to explore the other ranges of quality wines for which Stellenbosch Hills is famous. The tastings take place at the winery, Mondays to Fridays 9am till 5pm and Saturdays 10am till 3pm. Reservations are highly recommended.
