Up next is a South African staple: Caramelised Onion Braaibroodjies and Thunderstone Red.

Translated in Afrikaans to ‘barbecue bread’, these South African sandwiches are the perfect accompaniment to a braai. A few basic ingredients combined between two slices of bread creates quite a fantastic sandwich with a blend of smoky, sweet, and savoury flavours. This is why we’ve created the perfect gourmet version of the braaibroodjie to pair with our award-winning red blend.

The richness of the basil, caramelised and onion and mozzarella flavours compliment the Thunderstone Red blend’s complexity yet great balance of the cinsault, cabernet sauvignon and syrah. Pairing these two will make for a truly mouth-watering experience! Save this recipe for Braai Day if you want to impress.
