Simonsig Wine Estate

One of the oldest wine farms in South Africa

Simonsig Wine Estate

Koelenhof, South Africa

Simonsig Wine Estate is synonymous with the history of the South African wine industry, the Stellenbosch wine region, and the Malan family name. These elements are intertwined in this family-owned farm, where the late Frans Malan produced the first bottle of our much-loved Kaapse Vonkel, South Africaʼs first Méthode Cap Classique made in the classic bottle-fermented style. He is also honoured for co-founding the thriving Stellenbosch Wine Route, a first in its time. Today, his legacy lives on through his sons, Francois and Johan, and grandchildren Francois-Jacques, Christelle and Michael, the 2nd and 3rd Malan generations at Simonsig Wine Estate.

The Garland

The colour is deep and dark with opaque almost black centre. Sweet, fully ripe plums with juicy black berry cordial shine through a discreet lead pencil and dry herbaceous veil. This indicates the fruit is opening and overcoming the flavours of extraction from the skins. The clever use of oak keeps all the spiciness and toast aromas well integrated and only plays a supportive role.


Entry on the palate delivers a textbook Simonsberg Cabernet bouquet of graphite, cigar box and freshly tilled earth with ripe cassis showing through a window which reveals the wine’s future maturation and evolution. As time goes on the juicy, berry fruit and violets will emerge with increasing intensity. The classic, fine-grained tannins provide a beautiful framework for the deeply concentrated flavours while still retaining the finesse of the exceptional 2017 vintage.

Redhill Pinotage 2020 (Malan Family Selection)

The wine has a vivid dark red colour. Bursting with fruit, there are aromas of cranberries, black cherries, and spicy raspberries with a perfume of violets, vanilla and musk candy. With excellent oak integration, fine elegant tannins and tangy acidity, the wine has a weightless intensity to it that makes it a fine wine.

This Blanc de Blancs displays a light straw colour and exceptionally fine mousse. Refreshing aromas of lemon and lime flowers are complimented by layers of stone fruits, apples and freshly baked bread. A delicate and precise palate accentuates these aromas and offers additional minerality and yeasty complexity. Beautiful acidity contributes extraordinary length to this prestige cuvee, making every occasion a special celebration.
