Drostdy Hof lets you bring the Bokke Gees home with biltong pâté
May 24th 2016, 16:08
While rugby gees at the stadium or pub is always exciting, sometimes the winter cold makes us want to curl up and stay indoors! Drostdy Hof invites you to make the most of the moment in your own home when South Africa takes on Ireland this June 11.
Drostdy Hof, as South African as the “Bokke”, was originally established in 1964 just outside Tulbagh. The success of the wines is a result of careful selection and blending of the grapes – take Drostdy Hof’s Merlot, for example. This medium-bodied wine with strawberry and cherry flavours is an ideal companion to most red meat and game dishes.
For a lekker South African spectator snack, try this fuss-free, delicious biltong pâté on melba toast/toasted baguette slices paired with Drostdy Hof’s Merlot (available nationwide in a 750ml bottle or 3l box.)
100g biltong, finely grated
100g cream cheese
50ml double cream
2tbsp Worcestershire sauce
¼ tbsp coriander, ground
melba toast or toasted baguette slices, to serve
olives, to serve
gherkins, to serve
• Cream together all ingredients until smooth.
• Since the pâté will be fairly loose, spoon into ramekins.
• Serve on either melba toast or toasted baguette slices with a glass of Drostdy Hof Merlot.
• Tip: serve with olives and gherkins
• Spoon extra pâté into a glass storage container and store in the fridge (consume within two days.)

Warm up this winter while the sun's away with Place in the Sun Merlot. Its bright fresh berry tastes with a hint of oak respond deliciously to some traditional Glühwein spicing. Heart-warming to drink, the wine offers the added bonus of doing good for others.
Fairtrade-accredited Place in the Sun wines are kind to the earth and to the people who harvest the grapes. To earn the certification, grapes have to be cultivated according to eco-friendly principles. Place in the Sun also pays a premium for the fruit. The money is used to support health, nutritional, educational and recreational projects decided on by the farm workers involved.
Red meat and red wine is a classic pairing for a reason! The tannins in reds bond with and soften the protein of the meat, bringing out its savoury flavours and juiciness.
Fed up with the standard cheese, crackers, and olives when putting a snack together? Make a baked Camembert!
