South Africa vs Japan

Why not relax and soak up all the excitement at home and let someone else do the food for a change. Who really wants to have to light a fire and braai, celebrate South Africa’s first ever game against Japan by organizing a sushi platter from SushiBox De Grendel’s favourite sushi restaurants and pair it with De Grendel’s Koetshuis Sauvignon Blanc 2015 the perfect combination for match day happiness.

Koetshuis 2015 is the perfect pairing for sushi as the green elements like kiwi and green asparagus interplay beautifully with gooseberries and lemongrass that introduces a beautiful clean and flinty palate. When eating sushi you are looking for a wine that has enough acidity to enhance the beautiful subtle flavours of the fish. While bold enough to refresh the palate in between each bite so you get to experience the whole array of flavour combinations that we know and love sushi to have.

You can order our Koetshuis Sauvignon Blanc at  

SushiBox has just opened on Kloof Street (021 422 1894) in Town and is also located in Newlands (021 674 0820). Call them and organise a few party platters for match day. Follow them @SushiBoxSA on Twitter and on Facebook SushiBoxSA.
