Simonsig Chenin Blanc 2007

Member Review by Philip James:

Grapefruit and citrus on the nose. Very nicely balanced with lively acidity, good oak and a clean minerality. Very nice and worked well with mushroom soup.

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.

Wine with a great value for money. Nice and refreshing on a warm day. All aspects of the wine are nicely integrated.

Aromas of sunripend yellow apples and pears. Tactile subtle, sweet dried apricots and honey are perfectly balanced by a subtle mineral finish.
