Created to be paired with Spier’s Seaward Chardonnay 2018, this creamy pasta dish is delicious and simple.  The wine is lightly-wooded with a creamy palate and retails for about R110.

Creamy Smoked Chicken & Chive Pasta

15 ml olive oil
Small bunch of spring onions, finely sliced (reserve some for serving)
