More Information

In the cellar

6-7 days on the skins at 26°C in open fermenters. Punch downs were done every 2 hours during fermentation. After malolactic fermentation the wine aged in 5% new and 95% second/third and fourth fill French oak barrels for 12-14 months.

In the vineyard

Despite good rainfall, the region was still affected by the preceding drought and realised a much smaller crop for the second year in a row. The start of the harvest was more normal and the early cultivars ripened well. The late cultivars ripened more uneven and later. The quality of the wines are great!

Ageing

Early drinking style, can be opened and enjoyed within two years from vintage date.

Cultivar

Cape Blend

Food Pairing

Serve with Matured steaks, game dishes, or oxtail.

About the Wine Estate

Simonsig Wine Estate is synonymous with the history of the South African wine industry, the Stellenbosch wine region, and the Malan family name. These elements are intertwined in this family-owned farm, where the late Frans Malan produced the first bottle of our much-loved Kaapse Vonkel, South Africaʼs first Méthode Cap Classique made in the classic bottle-fermented style. He is also honoured for co-founding the thriving Stellenbosch Wine Route, a first in its time. Today, his legacy lives on through his sons, Francois and Johan, and grandchildren Christelle and Michael, the 2nd and 3rd Malan generations at Simonsig Wine Estate.
