News at Clos Malverne
With the particularly dry and warm season that the Western Cape is still experiencing, a lot of grape farmers (including us) were concerned about smaller crops. Due to this season’s abnormal heat and water shortages, vines usually produce fewer grapes; while at the same time the berries are smaller and generally weigh less.
Although these challenging conditions brought smaller crops, the dry climate was also conducive to disease free vines. The result was a small, yet healthy crop. Smaller berries also mean that the skin/juice ratio is much lower resulting in concentrated flavours that promise excellent wine.
You can look forward to 2017 vintage wines being spectacular but perhaps less available. Here is to another great vintage from Clos Malverne cellar!
Clos Malverne is extremely excited to introduce two new wines to our Devonet range, namely Devonet Sauvignon Blanc and Devonet Rosé. http://closmalverne.co.za/clos-malverne-wines/
Devonet Sauvignon Blanc is a crisp and light wine with tropical flavours of litchi, melon and gooseberries. Devonet Rosé is a delight to the palate with candyfloss and red fruit flavours of cherry and red berries. This wine has a crisp acidity and is an easy drinking wine.
Our exceptionally talented Chef, Nadia Louw-Smith will be introducing the Devonet range with her tantalizing new Autumn Ice cream.
The Restaurant @ Clos Malverne
Our monthly Gourmet Evenings returns in 2017, again on every last Friday of the month, featuring unique and special dishes that do not appear on our regular menu. The atmosphere is more intimate, with our Cellar Master in attendance to explain the Food & Wine pairing options, many exciting give-aways and a relaxed atmosphere that guarantee a good time all-around. This special dinner occasion has become popular to the extent that January & February were fully booked. We thus encourage our guests to make a booking in advance to avoid disappointment.
Autumn is the season of change, as the leaves turn colour and parade a new garment, the same happens in our restaurant. Exciting flavours and artistically created dishes to look forward to with our Autumn Food & Wine Pairing menu, as well as our trailblazing Ice Cream & Wine Pairing.
We welcome you to join us for a signature Clos Malverne Food & Wine experience!
