The Wine in Detail

The Simonsig Merindol Syrah appears in the gourmet’s glass with a dark cherry red colour. The bouquet consists of aromas of black cherries and dark berries with a hint of tobacco. On the palate, these aromas reoccur and notes of wild herbs and oak support them. The finish of the Simonsig Merindol Syrah underlines this taste with its tannins.


Goes with …

The Simonsig Merindol Syrah is an unusual wine that goes with equally unusual dishes. Gourmets like serving it with filled quails or roasted duck. Particularly for specialities like fried kudu, ostrich steak or springbok, the Simonsig Merindol Syrah is a perfect companion!


Grape Variety

The grape variety of the Simonsig Merindol Syrah is one of the most popular vines of South Africa. It is known for its crimson red, poignant red wines that are rich in tannins. Winemakers plant the vines on a specially selected location. The deep red soil that is rich in granite and has a high percentage of clay is ideal for red vine cultivation as it can retain water very well. That means the vines are always provided with water, even during the dry summer months. The quality was optimized through the ideal location and the soil is simply perfect for premium wines such as the Simonsig Merindol Syrah.


The Winery

The winery Simonsig looks back on more than 300 years of tradition. What is special is that the estate has been owned by the same family since the beginning. The great location in Stellenbosch with its sandstone soils and warm climate is a perfect basis for the cultivation of premium wines which is impressively proven by the Simonsig Merindol Syrah.


Storage

The winemakers have developed the Simonsig Merindol Syrah in 100 % new French oak for 19 months which makes it very storable. This noble red wine is a pleasure when opened today yet some gourmets will prefer to enjoy it after some years of maturing time in the cellar so that the Simonsig Merindol Syrah can develop its full character.
