The Simonsig The Grapesmith Mediterraneo shimmers in a pale straw yellow in the glass and delights from the first moment with its expressive, floral fragrance. Citrus aromas and notes of tropical fruits round off the bouquet wonderfully. On the palate, fresh fruit notes of stone fruit and lemons are particularly noticeable, surrounded by a light oak note, which the white wine blend of Marsanne (39%), Roussanne (37%), Grenache Blanc (22%) and Verdelho (2%) owes to its eleven months of ageing in French oak. Crisp and well-structured, the Simonsig The Grapesmith Mediterraneo will gain even more complexity over time. The white wine, of which only nine barrels were produced, ends with a mineral finish. The possible combinations of Simonsig The Grapesmith Mediterraneo are as complex as its character, because the white wine goes well with dishes with poultry in a creamy sauce or grilled fish, as well as with various types of cheese or spicy dishes, such as a mild curry. But you should also definitely try this white wine on its own. Incidentally, Simonsig The Grapesmith Mediterraneo owes its name to the grape varieties from which it was made, as they cope well with the Mediterranean climate that also prevails in the Cape.

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.
