The Simonsig Frans Malan Reserve, named after the founder of the winery, sparkles in a beautiful ruby red glass. Lush fruit aromas of red cherries and plums enchant the nose of the connoisseur, while nuances of cherry tobacco and liquorice provide a spicy component. On the palate, the blend from Pinotage (70%), Cabernet Sauvignon (23%) and Merlot (7%) delights with soft tannins, which give the Simonsig Frans Malan Reserve its elegance and balance. Furthermore, the blend has matured for 15 months in French and American oak and is the perfect accompaniment to dishes with dark meat or game, but roast duck is also an excellent choice for the Simonsig Frans Malan Reserve.

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.
