b2ap3_thumbnail_Avontuur-Trying-out-Oldenburg-wine.jpg

-

Fans of this less common and charming varietal will get the chance to celebrate their favourite grape on Saturday, 20 May 2017 from 11h00-17h00 at the family-owned wine estate between Stellenbosch and Somerset West.

In addition to the tastings and purchasing of wines visitors can book for one of three tutored tastings of the Top 6 wines in the 2017 Cab Franc Challenge, presented by head of the judging panel and Cape Wine Master Christine Rudman.  Tickets costs R75 pp extra and only three sessions of 20 persons each can be accommodated at 11h30, 13h30 and 15h00.

“This is the only chance to taste the Top 6 together as many of these wines are extremely rare and were kept aside especially for the tutored tastings,” says organiser Cobie van Oort from CVO Marketing.

The very popular public “vote” to choose the favourite wine of the day,will once again take place which will give an interesting perspective on the differences between expert and amateur palates.

Participating wineries are:   Avontuur Estate, CK Wines, Doolhof  Wine Estate, Edgebaston,  Hannay Wines, Hermanuspietersfontein, Knorhoek Wine Farm, Lynx Wines, My Wyn, Nelson Wine Estate, Oldenburg Vineyards, Ormonde Vineyards, Raats Family Wines, Rainbow’s End Wine Estate, The Garajeest,  Uva Mira Mountain Vineyards, Vrede en Lust, Warwick Estate, Whalehaven, Zorgvliet Wines.

Tickets are R200pp which includes the tastings, a R50 discount coupon to spend on food, and a tasting glass. Tickets from www.plankton.mobi or www.computicket.co.za  as well as at Computicket branches.

L’Ormarins MCC and nougat – a pairing of the senses

Tickle your tastebuds and pep up your palate with bubbly and nougat! Breaking with tradition, the estate’s three L’Ormarins Methodé Cap Classiques (MCC) have each been paired with hand-crafted nougat, which perfectly complement the wines as well as showcasing their versatility as a partner to confectionery. Each nougat has been designed to bring out a certain characteristic found in its MCC partner.

L’Ormarins Brut NV has been paired with a delicious morsel of Cassata nougat, which is fashioned on the traditional Italian-inspired dessert. The candied fruit, vanilla and almond perfectly partner the fruity and toasty notes of the Brut. The beautiful blush pink Brut Rosé has been paired with a cherry, cranberry and rose nougat, which amplifies similar flavours in the Rosé. Completing the trio is the stately Blanc de Blancs and it’s a match made in heaven with the toasted pecan, orange and fleur de sel (salt) nougat. Presented in a relaxed atmosphere in the comfort of the luxurious Anthonij Rupert Tasting Room the pairing is available at R60 per person.
