The Simonsig Chenin avec Chêne is a full-bodied white wine whose grapes come from the oldest Chenin Blanc vineyard on the winery. The wine sparkles in a bright straw yellow in the glass and exudes the wonderful scent of fresh citrus fruits, paired with white peach and floral tones. On the palate, concentrated notes of nectarine and lemons enchant the connoisseur and culminate in a fresh finish with mineral nuances. The complex Simonsig Chenin avec Chêne owes its great structure and balance to its twelve-month-long maturation in French oak. This is also where the name of the white wine comes from, because "Chenin avec Chêne" means "Chenin with oak". The wine is an excellent accompaniment to food, especially the combination with grilled fish or chicken is recommended.

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.
