The Simonsig Tiara is the flagship of the winery. The red wine blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (70%), Merlot (22%), Petit Verdot (4%) and Cabernet Franc (4%) therefore combines the best that the vintage has to offer. All four grape varieties yielded grapes with concentrated fruit aromas. This is also reflected in the character of the wine, which impresses with its crimson colour even in the glass. Rich notes of ripe red cherries and raspberries are accompanied by nuances of violet with a hint of oak. On the palate, the harmoniously balanced red wine, which has matured for 16 months in French oak, is a delight with pleasant tannins and a long-lasting finish. Thanks to its good structure, the Simonsig Tiara has a beautiful potential for development, but thanks to its intense fruit and elegance, the blend is already today a great pleasure. If you want to serve the Simonsig Tiara with your meal, dishes with dark meat or game with mushrooms and pasta are highly recommended.

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.
