The Simonsig Gewürztraminer sparkles in a great straw yellow in the glass. The inviting bouquet exudes the wonderful scent of Turkish delight and lime leaves. On the palate, the white wine delights with intense notes of lychee, citrus fruits and rose petals while the sweet and spicy aromas are skilfully balanced by a fresh acidity. In the course of time the refined Simonsig Gewürztraminer will become even more complex, but it is already now a great pleasure. This white wine is especially recommended to a cheese platter, a delicious curry or the Asian cuisine.
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.
