RIDGELAND, Miss. – Seafood R’evolution presents a Babylonstoren Wine Tasting on Wednesday, January 31st, beginning at 6 p.m. Seven South Africa wines will be paired with small plates for $60 per person, excluding tax and gratuity.
“This event is a little different than the ones we typically orchestrate at Seafood Revolution,” said Chef John Folse, executive chef and managing partner of Seafood R’evolution. “The focus is primarily on providing guests with an opportunity to sample a variety of wines while also tasting foods of South Africa from the Babylonstoren cookbook, Babel.”
Seafood R’evolution will welcome Charl Coetzee, Babylonstoren winemaster from Simondium, South Africa, to present the wines. Coetzee will expound upon the delicate notes and flavor profiles of the exceptional vintages.
The evening begins with Chenin Blanc 2017 complemented by Citrus Shiitake Mushrooms with Parmesan Crust. Next, guests will enjoy Viognier 2016 and Baked Sweet Potato and Apricot with fresh shaved kohlrabi and ginger apricot dressing. The third wine sampled will be Babylonstoren Chardonnay 2016 complemented with Lightly Grilled Smoked Trout. Then, guests will taste Mourvèdre Rosé 2017 paired with Aubergne and Zucchini Salad. The night continues with a Babel Red Blend 2016 accompanied by Lentils and Tahini with masala yogurt. The sixth wine to be enjoyed will be Babylonstoren Shiraz 2015 complemented by Pork Belly with satsuma-flavored tom yum broth. Finally, the night concludes with Nebukadnesar Red Blend 2015 served with Lamb Loin accompanied by grapefruit, preserved ginger and almond pesto.
This educational South African wine experience is $60 per person and includes a tasting of each wine and small plate. In addition, Babylonstoren’s Babel cookbook will be available for purchase.
