My Notes
Adapted from Caro de Waal’s Lamb Knuckles in Tomatoes and Wine

Our friend Nico is a red wine drinker, and as we are cut from the same cloth Sunday afternoons are set aside for wine tasting. We will compare varietals and vineyards and we swallow – no spitting is allowed. A few years ago he was given a selection from a friend’s cellar. The friend had passed away and his wife decided to give Nico a gift of Roodeberg. Of all the red wines in the cellar, he was given his least favourite, and each time he shares a bottle with us he tells us the story and we all end up enjoying the wine.  So, when I saw this month’s challenge I knew it would not be a problem to find a bottle of the wine, and I knew it would go perfectly with the lamb. We went to Nico and I asked him if I could please have a bottle of Roodeberg. He told me that he had given away the last 6 bottles as a thank you gift to someone. That lucky person has a wine that I could not find in any of my local wine shops, grocery stores or bottle stores. This however did not deter me from making the dish, which is perfect for a cold winter’s night.

The Vinatics task for the month was to pair the Roodeberg with a selection of recipes, and even though I cannot state that the wine does go with this, I can tell you for sure that red wine is a perfect accompaniment to this really hearty dish.

  5. What a pity about the wine – lovely hearty dish and slow roasting is always so much nicer.
