The Simonsig Tiara presents itself in the glass in a beautiful maroon brown, which turns into a bright red at the rim. The red wine blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (63%), Merlot (27%), Petit Verdot (6%) and Cabernet Franc (4%) is the flagship of the winery, so only the best grapes that the vintage has to offer are used for the Simonsig Tiara. Already in the bouquet, the red wine enchants with its wonderful scent of blackcurrants and dark cherries as well as undertones of oak and light floral nuances. This complexity continues on the palate. Concentrated aromas of dark fruits are surrounded by fine cocoa and spicy hints. Well-integrated oak notes and silky soft tannins give the Simonsig Tiara a wonderful mouthfeel. Its elegance and intense fruity notes make the red wine, which was matured for 19 months in French oak, a culinary highlight on its own, but the Simonsig Tiara is also an excellent accompaniment to dishes with dark meat, pasta and mushrooms.

Expert Judgement

"The new French oak leaves a sizeable calling card here, but this is meant to be a structured, ageworthy red cuvée of Cabernet Sauvignon with 37% Merlot, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc, so it's part of the style. Concentrated, compact and firm, it needs time. " Tim Atiken South Africa Report 2021

Simonsig: ‘Home of the Cap Classique’

Simonsig is inseparably connected with the term de Cap Classique. This 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 Cap Classique and is therefore rightly the home of the Cap Classique 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.
