Sauvignon Blanc and Sage – try our combination this weekend



While we are so excited about our recently introduced Culinaria Food and Wine Pairing presented on Friday mornings, finding a great food and wine match is our priority any day of the week!

Visitors to our Tasting Room can taste herb-flavoured bread sticks with a recommended wine partner. We found that our 2014 Leopard’s Leap Sauvignon Blanc combines exceptionally well with Sage, so we thought to share our recipe for Sage Bread Sticks, for you to enjoy with a well-chilled glass of Sauvignon Blanc this weekend.

Recipe for Sage Bread Sticks

Ingredients

300 g flour

10 g salt

10 g sugar

10 g instant yeast

400 ml water, luke-warm

100 ml oil

½ cup chopped sage

Method

Pre-heat your oven to 200°C.

Mix all the dry ingredients in a bowl.

Add the water and begin to incorporate then add the oil and continue to mix until a rough dough is formed.

Transfer the dough onto a floured surface and continue kneading until it becomes smooth and elastic. Return the dough to the bowl, cover with a damp cloth and set aside to prove until double the size.

Knock back the air and knead for a second time until it becomes smooth then divide the dough into 10 pieces and roll into thin sticks.

Sprinkle your work surface with the chopped sage and roll the sticks in the sage.

Transfer the bread sticks onto a prepared baking sheet and set aside to prove for 5 minutes.

Bake for 5-7minutes or until golden brown.
