While Rosé is most commonly consumed as refreshment in warm weather, it pairs very well with winter dishes like spicy curries or a Thai coconut milk noodle soup.
Khao Soi is from Northern Thailand – a noodle soup with an amazing combination of flavours and texture. This soup only takes 15 minutes to make! Your taste buds are in for a treat with this delicious Thai soup and the best of all – it pairs so well with the Delheim Pinotage Rosé. Who said Rosé is just for summer-sipping?
