The bubbles go on – and on, and on …
November 26th, 2009 by Cathy Marston
Truly sorry if you don’t like sparkling wine folks, but it just seems that EVERYTHING I am going to these days involves fizz. In fact, now I think about it, actually I am not going to apologise for this because the more fizz and fun in your life, the better it is.
This is especially true if you get invited to a champagne brunch at 10am on a Thursday morning – a particularly decadent time for drinking if you ask me. The Sky Bar at the top of the Cape Royale seems to be the place to launch your bubbly these days (see below) and Melissa Nelsen couldn’t have chosen a better spot if she tried. Her maiden fizz, Genevieve, refers to her middle name and not that 1950’s British movie involving the London to Brighton vintage road race, although I am sure a bottle or two would help all the Hooray Henrys immensely! She says that fizz is currently her passion and not her profession (she does the marketing for several exclusive Walker Bay wine estates including Niels and Penny Verburg’s lovely Luddite) but you can tell she really wants to do this full time.
And why not? This is a great first effort, a blanc de blanc made from 100% Chardonnay with the help of fizz fundi, Ross Gower. Lots of toast, biscuits, lemons and limes and a worryingly quaffable quality to it (probably helped by the many smiling waiters who kept cropping up at my elbow with full bottles). Nice nibbles, lovely views, perfect start to the day.
Genevieve MCC launch 26th November 2009:
The launch of Genevieve MCC was held at the stunning Sky Bar ( Cape Royale Luxury Hotel, Cape Town). The assembled group of writers, wine fundis and Genevieve MCC supporters were introduced to this first time showing of Genevieve MCC.
With the combination of good food, great bubbly flowing and the interesting mix of guests, the event created quite a stir.
