Nederburg, Platters By Diners Club South African Wine Guides 2017 Winery of the Year, will be offering a very rare sampling of its four Platters 2017 five-star wines, as rated by the authoritative guides panel of judges.
This culinary showcase, set to take guests on a sensory journey of discovery, will take place at Camissa Brasserie at Cape Towns luxurious The Table Bay Hotel, situated in the iconic V&A Waterfront, on Thursday, 29 June at 18:00.
The event will be hosted by Jean-Pierre Rossouw, the publisher of the Platters guide, together with Nederburgs white-wine maker, Natasha Boks, and renowned celebrity chef, Pete Goffe-Wood of MasterChef South Africa fame, as MC.
This special dinner marks the start of a series of exclusive wine and food pairing evenings at The Table Bay, in collaboration with the Platters guide.
The jaw-dropping menu for the first dinner with Nederburg was creatively devised by The Table Bays Executive Chef, Jocelyn Myers-Adams, to complement the unique taste profile of each individual Nederburg wine.
Says Myers-Adams: Our first Platters pairing dinner with Nederburg is indeed a meeting of minds in celebration of the exquisite interplay between food and wine. We are delighted to partner with South Africas finest winery for this event, which will feature some of Nederburgs Private Bin wines, rated five stars by Platters in its 2017 edition. These are exclusively available for purchase by registered buyers at the annual Nederburg Auction, making it a most auspicious and rare occasion.
Now in its 43th year, the prestigious Nederburg Auction has been held annually since 1975 and is one of the most important fixtures on the South African wine calendar.
The award-winning wines that guests will enjoy with Myers-Adams spectacularly orchestrated dinner menu are: Nederburg Cuvée Brut, served with fresh oysters on arrival; Nederburg Private Bin D234 Sauvignon Blanc 2015 (Platters 2017 five-star wine) paired with fish carpaccio as a starter; Nederburg Private Bin R163 Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 (Platters 2017 five-star wine) matched with biltong-dusted AAA-grade beef fillet for the first main; Nederburg Heritage Heroes The Brew Master 2014 (Platters 2017 five-star wine) accompanied by succulent duck as the second main; and Nederburg The Winemasters Noble Late Harvest 2015 (Platters 2017 five-star wine) served with a delectable chocolate mousse bomb for dessert.
In true style of The Table Bay, Myers-Adams has woven the unique flavours of indigenous plants and herbs foraged from the Capes natural surrounds into her dishes for a truly authentic South African taste experience. She hints that various scents and flavours will be delivered through a variety of culinary methods so expect an all-encompassing sensory experience with interesting mists, powders, foams, gels and smoke!
