The Simonsig The Grapesmith Die Kluisenaar shines in a powerful straw yellow in the glass and already proves its complexity in the bouquet. Aromas of citrus blossom, lemon tarte and baked apple pamper the connoisseur's senses and are underpinned by yeast notes and undertones of roasted nuts. On the palate, nuances of stone fruit and a fine minerality unfold. The well-integrated acidity and wonderful texture give the Simonsig The Grapesmith Die Kluisenaar its great mouthfeel that lingers on for a long time. The multi-faceted white wine blend of Roussanne (58%) and Marsanne (42%) matured for eleven months in French oak and will gain even more complexity and depth over time. But even today, the limited white wine, of which only seven barrels were produced, is a highlight for the palate. Dishes with poultry, grilled seafood or cheese are an excellent choice with Simonsig The Grapesmith Die Kluisenaar.

Expert Judgement

"Naturally fermented in older oak, Die Kluisenar is a lees-aged blend of Roussanne with 42% Marsanne, showing some skin tannins, black tea, pear and quince flavours and a tangy finish. Distinctive stuff. " 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.
