Simonsig The Grapesmith Mediterraneo 2019

Product information "Simonsig The Grapesmith Mediterraneo 2019"
The Simonsig The Grapesmith Mediterraneo shimmers in a pale straw yellow in the glass and delights from the first moment with its expressive, floral fragrance. Citrus aromas and notes of tropical fruits round off the bouquet wonderfully. On the palate, fresh fruit notes of stone fruit and lemons are particularly noticeable, surrounded by a light oak note, which the white wine blend of Marsanne (39%), Roussanne (37%), Grenache Blanc (22%) and Verdelho (2%) owes to its eleven months of ageing in French oak. Crisp and well-structured, the Simonsig The Grapesmith Mediterraneo will gain even more complexity over time. The white wine, of which only nine barrels were produced, ends with a mineral finish. The possible combinations of Simonsig The Grapesmith Mediterraneo are as complex as its character, because the white wine goes well with dishes with poultry in a creamy sauce or grilled fish, as well as with various types of cheese or spicy dishes, such as a mild curry. But you should also definitely try this white wine on its own. Incidentally, Simonsig The Grapesmith Mediterraneo owes its name to the grape varieties from which it was made, as they cope well with the Mediterranean climate that also prevails in the Cape.

Simonsig for the Wine Lover

Simonsig wine stands for exceptional quality and excites wine lovers worldwide. The winemakers apply laborious cultivation methods at the wine slopes and use modern cellar technology to produce the best wine possible. They also make sure that a Simonsig wine reflects its terroir as well as the taste that is typical for the grape variety.

Simonsig Located Ideally

The winery Simonsig is located 45 kilometres away from Cape Town and belongs to the region Stellenbosch. This area counts as one of South Africa's best wine regions according to many experts; no other region's yard produces as many premium wines as they do here. This is not surprising, as Stellenbosch and therefore vineyards such as Simonsig benefit from the ideal location. Soils are full of minerals and supply the vines with precious nutrients due to sufficient rainfall, whilst the breeze from the Atlantic makes for the required cooling.

Simonsig Wine Relies on its Winemakers

A true Simonsig wine only becomes possible with the expertise of the winemakers. This is why the yard attaches great importance to highly trained winemakers and wine growers, who accompany the cultivation and maturing process of the wine with much love and knowledge.

Biodiversity & Wine Initiative at Simonsig

In order to ensure a sustainable handling with nature, Simonsig is part of the Biodiversity & Wine Initiative. The winery grows a range of different grape varieties to have a great spectrum of plants in the region and to use the natural resources optimally. This is another example of the winemakers' expertise, who succeed in combining the different grape varieties every year - and this of a constant high quality. Additionally, Simonsig is active in preservation of native plants such as the Fynbos.
