Sommelier Dylan Pritchard of The Bay Hotel chooses a South African wine to compliment the food of Barak Hirschowitz the hotelís executive chef.

south african springbokThe Dish - Rack of Springbok and curry spiced butternut squash. (Springbok is a native mild favored game, similar to venison)

His choice - Saxenberg Shiraz Private Collection 1996.
The vine produces small to medium blue-black berries with thin skins. This wine possesses a dense smoky flavor with peppery undertones and underlying richness. These qualities make Saxenberg Shiraz the perfect choice for the rich flavor of the meat and the curry flavors of the butternut.

Dylan studied at the Witswatersrand Hotel School. After graduation he took leave of his native South Africa and worked in Ireland. Since his return he worked at the Edward Hotel in Durban and the Indaba Hotel in Johannesburg before joining the Bay.
