Summer has arrived, and here at Paserene we have been really busy.
Harvest 2020 started with a bang, we have launched a new wine range called Elements, and have a fantastic new small plate menu available in our tasting lounge. Now is a better time than ever to visit us when you find yourself in Franschhoek any day of the week!

New Releases

We are thrilled to announce that our Elements range has arrived and all 5 wines will be available in the tasting lounge this month. Our new additions promise to delight any palate, and Martin says, “These are the perfect wines to enjoy during the week whilst you wait for your Paserene wines to mature.”

Joining Rosie and Bright, are Emerald, Dark and Midnight:

Emerald 2019 @ R130 cellar door
A well-integrated and honed Sauvignon Blanc. Bright green and golden in colour, with prominent aromas of citrus, tropical fruits and black currants. Delicious with tomato pasta, or fragrant summer salads.

Dark 2018 @ R170 cellar door
100% Syrah. Dark is an appealing ruby red in colour. The nose is gentle, yet defiant with aromas of chocolate, dried prunes and spice. Dark is medium in structure and shows slightly elevated acidity. Perfect with a fillet steak on the braai, or a slow cooked casserole.

Midnight 2018 @ R170 cellar door
100% Cabernet Sauvignon. Midnight lives up to the name and is almost black in colour. With strong mineral undertones, this Cabernet shows very expressive aromas of cassis, liquorice and black berries. A perfect match with lamb or thyme roasted chicken.

These wines can be tasted in our Elements Range Tasting for R75pp and are available to purchase from our tasting lounge. Click here for our price list.

Valentine’s Day

Bring your special someone and celebrate the official weekend of love at Paserene from the 14th to 16th February. Each guest will receive a specially paired marshmallow treat and a complimentary tasting of the Paserene Union to make the visit extra special.

Tasting Lounge

Join us in the tasting room to experience the delights of Paserene through either of our 2 wine tasting options. The Paserene Tasting is R150pp, which starts with a welcome tasting of Shiner White 2018, and followed by our 3 unique Paserene wines. The Elements Tasting is R75pp, and will allow guests the chance to taste all 5 of our Elements Range.

We have also started a splendid small plate offering, allowing you to create your own platter, choosing from a list of fan-favourite nibbles and bites. The selection is the perfect accompaniment to our wonderful wines. Our lawns are open, the wine is cold, and we can’t wait to welcome you!

Martin’s Harvest Report

“This year the weather has been strange, we often experience all four seasons in one day. Each week seems to change drastically from a heat wave to winter. We are pleased that the dams are much fuller in comparison to last year. The rain and wind we have experienced will have a definite effect on the quality of the grapes. The growth is looking great but we need to tread cautiously. We began our 2020 harvest with the Chardonnay block in Franschhoek last week. This Chardonnay is specifically for Bright. Throughout the 2020 harvest period, managing our vineyards and picking times is the greatest priority”.
