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 Read more »

A bit fruity but fresh and showing good typi... Read More

    Snoothrank:

    Lime and light jalapeno on the nose, with general citrus flavors. A bit medicinal with a grating tartness. No floral aromas or character and no complexity. Read More

  • Simonsig "Sunbird" Sauvignon Blanc 2009

    Snoothrank:

    At first, I thought this was a Pinot Grigio, the herbaceous scents of green grass and dandelion. On sipping, I knew I had a Sauv Blanc by its crisp acidity, medium-light mouth-feel and flavors of tangy lime. The finish turned slightly sour but not entirely unpleasant. Read More
