Simonsig Tiara 2018

Product information "Simonsig Tiara 2018"
The Simonsig Tiara is a complex red wine blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (82%), Merlot (13%), Petit Verdot (2%), Cabernet Franc (2%) and Malbec (1%) that glows a dark crimson in the glass. Immediately, fruity aromas of blackberries, blackcurrants and raspberries beguile the senses. Fine floral nuances and a hint of cedar lend even more complexity to the estate's best red wine. The tannins and acidity are well integrated on the palate and culminate in a long-lasting finish. Enjoy the Simonsig Tiara, aged for eighteen months in French oak, best with spicy or dark meat. But the red wine is also a real treat on its own.

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.
