• Celebrate the Harvest

    February and March are the months in the wine industry when there is always s buzz in the cellar.  Its harvest time!  There is lots to do and important decisions to be made as to when is the best time to pick the grapes.  At Clos Malverne, Sauvignon blanc is always up first! These vineyards lie low in the belly of the Devon Valley and enjoy a cool micro-climate owing to precipitation from the dam next to it, producing high quality grapes.

    The Merlot, Pinotage and Shiraz vineyards will be harvested next.  As usual, we will proudly continue the Clos Malverne tradition of Basket Pressing all our red wines.  We are one of the very few wineries in South Africa still using this hand crafted method of making wines.

     

    Celebrating the combination of good food and wine, The Restaurant @ Clos Malverne, will release the new Autumn Menu with seasonal delights.  Choose between a 3-course food & wine pairing for R448.00 per person or a 4-course food & wine pairing for R538.00 per person.  We also offer an A La Carte Menu if you prefer single courses.

    Our next Gourmet Evening will be Friday, 22 February at 19h00.  Do not miss out on this popular 5-course culinary feast. For more information contact The Restaurant on 021 – 865 2022 or send an email to info@closmalverne.co.za

  • Celebrating New Wine and Menus at Clos Malverne

    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!

    New Wines

    Devonet Wine

    Clos Malverne is extremely excited to introduce two new wines to our Devonet range, namely Devonet Sauvignon Blanc  and Devonet Rosé. https://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!
