Aspri Spirits hosted an intimate women-only exclusive sit-down dinner in honour of  Andrea Freeborough, the lady cellar master at Nederburg wineries in South Africa. Set in the elegant Olive Bar & Kitchen in Bandra West, Mumbai, the lavish specially crafted four-course menu by Chef Rishim Sachdeva blended perfectly with “Nederburg The Winemasters’ Wines”. The menu was presented in elegant personalized menu cards.

The pre-appetizer of lamb belly and capers was paired with the 2016 Nederberg The Winemaster’s Sauvignon Blanc – vibrant and grassy with a lingering pleasant finish. The succulent smoked pork and plum appetizer were accompanied by the 2015 Nederberg The Winemaster Shiraz – wonderful aromas of plum, berries and oak. One of my favourites of the evening.
