Grande Provence oysters and bubbly pairing smacks of summer

Grande Provence oysters and bubbly pairing smacks of summer

Savour the ultimate taste experience of uplifting Méthode Cap Classique and fresh West Coast oysters at Grande Provence Heritage Wine Estate in Franschhoek.

Served from the oyster bar under majestic oaks in the magnificent Sculpture Garden, the MCC and oyster pairing embraces three uniquely dressed oysters to complement the character and personality of each of the Grande Provence Brut MCCs.

Grande Provence Brut, a beautifully balanced blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, is paired with an oyster bedecked with dill, yuzu and cucumber in a dill-infused dressing with yuzu pearls and vermouth compressed cucumber adding the finishing touches.

The delightful Grande Provence Brut Rosé MCC, bursting with red berry and strawberry flavours, shares the limelight with an oyster enriched with home-made fermented kimchi, toasted sesame seeds and a dash of tom yum mayonnaise.

With hints of baked apples, biscotti, brioche and pears, the flagship Grande Provence Vintage Brut 2011 is a superb taste partner for an oyster enriched with vintage brut velouté (a cream based, bubbly and linefish sauce), Franschhoek trout roe, and dried nori.

The oysters are shucked directly from the Grande Provence oyster tank and garnished freshly at the oyster bar.

The summer MCC and oyster pairing is available daily between 12pm and 5pm at R180 from October 1, 2018, weather dependent. Additional fresh Saldanha Bay oysters are available at R90 for three. The oysters are served with lemon and mignonette sauce (a condiment made with shallots and cracked pepper).

Located in Franschhoek, the heartland of South African wine country, Grande Provence offers true South African wine heritage, exceptional food and wine, and luxury boutique accommodation. For more information visit www.grandeprovence.co.za, Facebook.com or Twitter @grande_provence.
