It might sound pretty odd pairing a freezing desert with wine, but there is a reason that this has become the estate’s signature tasting experience.
Four heavenly homemade scoops of gourmet ice cream are presented in ramekins facing partnered wines, to complement each others’ best qualities.
The ice cream flavour combinations change with the season, but we will experience a variety of fresh, fruity flavours (to match the Sauvignon Blanc Brut), creamy buttery ones in the mix (to go with their red varieties) and a spicy addition (to pair with the Muscat).
Don’t think ‘chocolate and vanilla’; we’re talking churned delights like their ‘parsnip, saffron, salted caramel and pumpkin seeds’ option which is part of the current line-up.
Join the members of Mensa Winelands for this epicurean experience at Clos Malverne in Stellenbosch at 12h00 on Saturday 17 October.
Guests are welcome. Mensa Winelands is subsidising the cost for their members, who pay R 70pp. Guests pay R 128pp.
Numbers are limited – booking and prepayment are essential. RSVP to the Winelands Secretary.
