Simonsig Cabernet Sauvignon Stellenbosch 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Enthusiast: A nose of dark chocolate, cherry and spice leads on this elegant Cabernet from quality producer Simonsig. Poised waves of red fruit and spice are balanced by medium-bodied tannins and minerals. The finish is clean and pronounced. A good wine for fans of more restrained reds. (May 2008)

Simonsig Estate upholds the legendary status of pioneering wine excellence shaped by the Malan dynasty’s devotion to quality and innovative winemaking. Named after its dramatic views of the Simonsberg Mountain, the estate is ideally situated in Stellenbosch, South Africa’s premier wine region, 45 km east of Cape Town. Here the cool maritime Mediterranean climate and quintessential terroir flawlessly intertwine to create world class wines. Since French Huguenot Jacques Malan first set foot in the Cape Winelands in 1688, the knowledge imparted over more than ten generations has equipped the Malan family to excel as one of the leading private producers of estate wines in South Africa. The late Frans Malan, beloved patriarch of the Malan Family and pioneer of the South African wine industry, was not only a craftsman of superior wines, but introduced numerous Simonsig ‘firsts’ leaving an indelible legacy in the Cape Winelands. From humble beginnings on the De Hoop farm in 1953 and inspired by Frans Malan’s foresight and quest for unsurpassed quality, Simonsig has grown into a successful family business with a proud heritage. His groundbreaking innovations include South Africa’s first Méthode Cap Classique, Kaapse Vonkel more than 30 years ago – bottle fermented sparkling wine made in the style of French champagne – as well as the first South African Rhine Riesling and wooded whites. Frans Malan was also one of the three founders of the famous Stellenbosch Wine Route, the first of its kind in Africa, introducing local cellars to wine lovers and tourists from all over the world since 1971.

The concentrated fruit and well-balanced, integrated oak forms a tightly knitted, full-bodied structure which will develop beautifully with careful cellaring. With a deep garnet red color, this wine has sweet black cherry and youngberry aromas intertwined with a hint of tobacco and spicy vanilla oak. Juicy fruit lingers on the long finish and aftertaste.
