Clos Malverne Estate
Clos Malverne creates special place to celebrate New year this year - an 8 course menu and brand new MCC 
When the clock strikes 12 on the 31st of December you will want to be in the warm company of family owned wine estate, Clos Malverne, where an extravagant eight course food and wine menu and their maiden Rosé Méthode Cap Classique will end the year on a gastronomic high.

This popular winelands hotspot in the heart of the beautiful Devon Valley outside Stellenbosch will pull out all the stops on New Year’s Eve with a lavish Clos Malverne Food & Wine Experience, sharing for one night only eight of its most prestigious vintages, each paired with a matching dish.

To add extra sparkle to this royal sensory indulgence, guests will toast the New Year with a glass of the estate’s first Brut Rosé bubbly which will only make its debut later in 2013 – so be the first to raise a glass to this elegant newcomer.

Chef Nadia’s exclusive menu kicks off with a sensational seafood trio which starts with a chilled Cucumber and Crayfish soup served with a flute of Clos Malverne Brut, followed by Kingklip Ceviche matched with a glass of the estate’s multi-crowned Sauvignon Blanc. The 2011 vintage sealed its second consecutive victory at this year’s FNB Sauvignon Blanc Top 10 competition.

Nadia’s Prawn and Sole Ravioli completes this tantalising threesome and will accompany the Clos Malverne Chardonnay to your table.

Food and wine aficionados will then be treated to a Smoked Ostrich Salad and the estate’s popular Cabernet Sauvignon/Shiraz after which exotic Mushroom Mousse Stuffed Plum Tomatoes will share the spotlight with the limited release Clos Malverne Sophia – a superior red blend made in honour of the beloved family matriarch, Sophia Pritchard.

Next on this whopping bill of fare is an oh-so-good Beef and Truffle Experience served with Clos Malverne’s limited release flagship Cape Blend, Auret 2008.

Her dessert duo includes a yummy Fig & Goats Cheese Tart married with the Clos Malverne Merlot before this memorable New Year’s Eve celebration is rounded off with a Mango & Macadamia Nut Tart accompanied by a Clos Malverne Honey Dew goodnight kiss.

Tickets for the New Year’s Eve Clos Malverne Food & Wine Experience cost R468 per person, which include all the wines, and this not-to-be-missed evening starts at 20h00 and will carry on until the wee hours of the New Year. Pre-bookings are essential as seating is limited.
