The Simonsig Redhill Pinotage enchants the connoisseur with impressing aromas of blackcurrants, sweet spices and a hint of cedar. The character of the red wine is also marked by concentrated fruit nuances on the palate. Dark cherries, red berries and blackcurrants are particularly noticeable and are accompanied by vanilla and roasted aromas. Moreover, the pleasant tannins provide a nice mouthfeel. The Simonsig Redhill Pinotage has matured for 16 months in French and American oak and harmonises wonderfully as a food companion to dishes with spicy fried tuna, slowly roasted pork belly, lamb or hearty dishes. The name Redhill, by the way, is derived from the red slate rock of the vineyard, Simonsig's famous Red Hill.

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.
