Simonsig Wines

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 Francois-Jacques, Christelle and Michael, the 2nd and 3rd Malan generations at Simonsig Wine Estate.

Wines on offer:
The Grapesmith

  • Die Kluisenaar

  • The Mediterraneo

Die Kluisenaar

Lime and acacia flavours with baked apple and caramel with an underlying minerality

The Mediterraneo

Pale straw colour with glints of green. Perfumed fresh lime and verbena aromas fill the glass, followed by a clean chalky minerality. The wine opens over time, revealing acacia flower fragrances. Fresh and restrained on the palate with lovely tension and crispness that persists to the finish. Complex layered flavours with perfectly integrated oak complemented by subtle hints of oats and autolysed yeast add to the palate weight.
