The Simonsig The Grapesmith Mediterraneo is a white wine blend made from Roussanne (70%), Marsanne (14%), Grenache Blanc (7%), Clairette Blanche (7%) and Verdelho (2%). This wine shimmers in the glass with a pale straw yellow with green reflections. The bouquet is characterized by fresh lime and mineral tones. Furthermore, in the course of time floral notes unfold. Fresh and crisp on the palate, this white wine from which only 14 barrels were produced is multi-layered with perfectly integrated oak notes. Enjoy this blend, some of which has matured in barrels for twelve months, best with grilled fish or chicken in a creamy sauce. But also goat cheese, a mild curry or spicy dishes are a good choice with this multi-faceted white wine. Simonsig The Grapesmith Mediterraneo owes its name to the grape varieties from which it was made, as they cope well with the Mediterranean climate, which 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.
