Our new Live-a-Little Somewhat Sweet and Soulful is a juicy red semi-sweet wine with red fruits on the palate, a soft smooth finish and a sweet cherry and candy floss nose.
We’ve chosen our three top food-pairing recipes to get you in the mood for a season of sweet and soulful celebrations, including two mouthwatering South African favourites to enjoy with your South African wine.
This delicious new addition to the Live-a-Little range is best enjoyed chilled with fresh fruit and cheese or try it at room temperature with Indian and sweet-spicy foods like Cape Malay lamb curry and Bobotie (a traditional South African spiced mince dish).
1. Traditional South African Home-Style Bobotie
“This traditional bobotie is a mix of a few recipes, hints and advice. As with most great dishes everyone has their own special version but this one seems to do the trick for me. This bobotie stems from my friend Ruschka’s mother’s recipe and was altered to the recipe you see below.”

2. Tradtional Cape Malay Curry
“This distinctive and tasty authentic curry relies heavily on the special blend of spices, known as Cape Malay curry powder. Cape Malay curries are famous for their fruity and full-bodied flavours, making good use of local colourful vegetables or meat and fish, they are not as hot as the curries used in the Indian kitchen. This “secret” recipe hails from one of the steamy kitchens in the vibrant Bo-Kaap area of Cape Town; it was on a recipe sheet given to my mum from a spice shop in that wonderful area, in the 1950’s.”
