Roodeberg celebrates World Chocolate Day with decadent truffles
Roodeberg, the cherished wine that has stood the test of time for over 70 years, is celebrating World Chocolate Day on 7 July with easy-to-make truffles that accentuate its masterly crafted blends.
From the Classic Red, the formidable Reserve and commemorative Roodeberg 1949, to the enchanting Rosé, you will find your perfect match with melt-in-your-mouth chocolate truffles.
By adding toppings of different tastes and textures to a fool proof, classic truffle recipe, foodie Elmarie Berry has created delicious flavour combinations for each of these wines. Convert your kitchen into a master chocolatier’s workshop for World Chocolate Day with her no-fuss suggestions.
For Roodeberg Classic Red, Elmarie recommends chocolate truffles topped with cocoa nibs or sifted cocoa powder to meld with the soft rounded palate and aromatic layers of fresh red fruit, cassis and pencil shavings.
The subtle aromas of strawberry, candy floss and raspberry with hints of rose petals of Roodeberg Classic Rosé work their magic with tempting chocolate truffles topped with dried cranberries.
Truffles rolled in crunchy sesame seeds make indulgent taste companions for Roodeberg Reserve complementing the hints of dark chocolate and aromas of red plum, blueberries and crushed herbs of the wine.
For the commemorative Roodeberg 1949, launched to celebrate Roodeberg’s 70th anniversary last year, rich crushed pistachio nuts blend seamlessly with the well-structured wine’s nuances of dark cherry, blackcurrant and vanilla.
