THE Bistro at Brookdale Estate is presenting a Winemaker’s Dinner on Thursday 28 September 2023. The special event will provide a platform for Kiara Scott Farmer to present her wines and showcase the terroir of the Paarl wine estate, expertly paired with a five-course dinner staged by executive chef, Gary Coetzee. Bookings are essential and meat or vegetarian options are available. Tickets cost R795 per person, and R695 for the vegetarian menu option.
On this special occasion, diners will have the unique opportunity to enjoy two new, limited-release wines within the Mason Road range. Not available for sale generally, the 2021 Cap Classique, as well as the 2023 Grenache Blanc may be enjoyed exclusively at The Bistro at Brookdale Estate only.
The event starts with line fish sashimi, yuzu, green Thai coconut dressing and sweet potato crisp, paired with Brookdale Sixteen Field Blend 2022. The second course of duck rillette, kataifi, port and raisin is complemented by Mason Road GSM 2022, a medium bodied blend of Grenache, Syrah, Cinsault and Petit Syrah. Following on from here, rabbit tortellini with tomato, crisp parmesan wafer and saffron cream will be enjoyed with Mason Road Grenache Blanc 2023. Char-grilled lamb cutlet will be served as main course with spiced smoor, potato samosa, peanut chutney and tamarind jus, meeting its perfect match in the Mason Road Syrah 2022.
Known for his delectable plant-based cooking, Gary will also offer a vegetarian menu option.
The gastronomic event will end on a high note with a parmesan cheesecake served with the maiden vintage of Brookdale’s Mason Road Cap Classique 2021. Deliciously decadent, a parmesan biscuit base will be presented with strawberries compressed in a lime sugar syrup, with the apricot and honey gelato and a cinnamon and ginger biscuit crumb adding a little sweetness to a grand finale.
