April, for many, means entertaining with family and friends; a long weekend of food and drink, whether it’s laidback lunches or formal dinners. It’s a month in which we allow ourselves treats, and we enjoy – guilt-free – all things sweet.
The perfect accompaniment to your entertaining and the must-have drink ready at the table is the KWV Classic Moscato. Moscato is the perfect wine to go alongside subtle flavours of mixed spices. Give your taste-buds and menu a twist by entertaining your guests with something a little different.
Win a case of KWV Classic Moscato, with floral, tropical and peach aromas and abundance of Muscat.
Competition closes 30 April 2017.

2 teaspoons of lemon juice
½ teaspoon kosher salt
Use a KWV Classic Moscato, which is an aromatic wine that exudes floral, tropical and peach aromas with an abundance of Muscat and hints of litchi that follow through on the palate – it’s a concentrated wine with a sweet, complex aftertaste.
In a medium saucepan, combine pears, Moscato and ginger. Cover and bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce to very low heat and cook, covered for 20 minutes.
Transfer pears, wine and ginger to a blender and add sugar. Cover and puree until smooth.
Pour through a strainer into an airtight container and stir in lemon juice and salt to taste. Cover and refrigerate for about 4-5 hours.
Transfer to an ice cream maker and churn according to instructions. Transfer ice cream to airtight container and chill in the freezer for 5 hours before serving.
