The Simonsig Pintoage shines in a beautiful crimson colour in the glass and scents wonderfully of dark berries, sweet spices and a little liquorice. On the palate, the red wine, a small part of which was matured in oak for twelve months, is very fruity and spoils the senses with notes of dark cherries, raspberries and strawberry compote. The soft, well-integrated tannins and the beautiful acidity provide a pleasant mouthfeel. Enjoy the Simonsig Pinotage best with your favourite pasta or grilled food, but also dishes with game or dark meat go very well with the fruity and accessible red wine.

Simonsig: ‘Home of the MCC’

Simonsig is inseparably connected with the term Méthode de Cap Classique, MCC in short. A Méthode de Cap Classique is a sparkling wine that the winemakers have created using the same strict rules and regulations as for a Champagne, but just not in France but on the Cape of South Africa. Simonsig was the first winery in South Africa that produced a MCC and is therefore rightly the home of the MCC of the country. If you visit the winery, definitely have a sip from the tangy, fruity Kaapse Vonkel. Otherwise, the visit just would not be complete.

High Standard of Service and Competence in the Tasting Room

Guests at Simonsig very much like the exceptionally good service of the estate that often goes beyond not just the expected, but also the dreamed-of. The atmosphere in the Tasting Room, as actually everywhere on the yard, is cordially and captivates with its secure competence in all aspects about wine from South Africa. Here, the visitor has the feeling of not only being a guest, but also a friend. The consistent overall picture is rounded off by the relaxed atmosphere and excellent food in the restaurant Cuvée that fills the plates with a delicious fusion of European cuisine and Cape recipes.

Tradition at the family-run Winery Simonsig

Right from the beginning, Simonsig had been owned by the Malan family. For over 300 years, the generations have passed on their knowledge and skills onto the next family generation, whilst the younger one always further develops the wines. It is exactly this fact - the traditional estate still being in the hands of one family - that makes the wines so special. In 1971, Simonsig was founder members of the first wine route in South Africa for gourmets worldwide who can now discover the most magnificent delicacies of the country.
