Genevieve MCC celebrated her 4-year anniversary in the Bot River Valley with a magnificent 3-course fine-dining experience. The tables dressed in flavours of our favourite MCC overlooked the vineyards where the exclusive Genevieve Chardonnay grapes are grown.
Top South African Chef, David Higgs of Five Hundred at the Saxon in Johannesburg, expertly paired each course to the specific Genevieve vintage.
The David Higgs menu and MCC pairing designed menu left guests content and impressed. The current Genevieve MCC 2010 paired with a delicious concoction of Bouche Goats Cheese with yellow beets, tarragon pickled almonds and grilled lettuce made a soft and delicate impact punctuated by the mineral notes.
A favourite among guests was the main course, prepared to highlight the full-bodied 2009 vintage was Confit Of Pork with pork skin popcorn, honeyed sweet potato and a ginger beer gel. Dessert was served with the last 2008 vintage stock on hand, with straw yellow colour and lively fine bubbles contributed to the persistent sensation of a well matured Cap Classique matched superbly with Macadamia & Halva Parfait pear mousse and lemon verbena custard.
Caroline’s White Wine & Cap Classique Review is one of the most important events on the South African wine calendar and Genevieve MCC will be there.
It is a showcase of a maximum of 60 wineries that have consistently achieved the highest accolades in all the top competitive platforms. Each of the selected wineries are invited to show just one wine for tasting by the public. This must be their flagship wine, and will be shown by the winemaker personally. One can engage with them and learn, in an organised yet informal atmosphere in the ballroom.
The annual event is to be held on Wednesday 30th October 2013, at TheTable Bay Hotel, V&A Waterfront, Cape Town.
Time: 17h00 until 21h00. Arrive anytime, and get your programme and crystal tasting glass at the entrance.
Tickets @ R150 are available exclusively at Computicket online, or at their outlets in major centres.
