From November 2018 until end-February 2019, Idiom will offer guests the opportunity to try a wine and macaron pairing experience.
The macarons are made by the pastry team at the Helderberg-based winery, with ingredients that showcase the character of the wines being paired. The pairing goes from light and airy to dark and intense.
The first wine in the pairing line-up is an imported Prosecco called Romeo and Juliet paired with a chamomile macaron. Garnished with white estate flowers, the ingredients include chamomile jelly, peach buttercream, white chocolate and bee pollen dust.
It is followed by Idiom’s Imperium White Gold, a late harvest viognier served with a lemon macaron. It incorporates caramel cream, honey jelly, lemon curd and candied lemon. The macaron is brushed with gold dust and served on crushed almond shortbread alongside yellow flower petals.
The Idiom Imperium Black Gold Hailstorm is the final pairing. This raisin wine made from Merlot grapes pairs with a flower-decorated blueberry macaron of dark chocolate ganache, violet jelly, blueberry gel and dried blueberry raisins.
The Idiom Wine & Macaron Experience is on offer from November until the end of February (Fridays until Sundays) at a price of R150 per person. Pre-bookings are essential and tour group bookings are available on request.For more info, visit www.idiom.co.za.
