KAAPSE VONKEL

2016 Brut Simonsig Estate

IN STOCK
Grapes Chardonnay, Pinot Meunier, Pinot Noir
Colour White
Origin South Africa
ABV 12.5%

The 2016 Kaapse Vonkel saw a portion of the Chardonnay fermented in old French oak barrels. It carries off the slight oxidative style quite well, offering walnut and chalky nuts and an emerging touch of dried orange peel. The palate is fresh and crisp with a fine bead of acidity, hints of peach and clementine toward the finish, and rosewater on the aftertaste. Drinking range: 2018 - 2024 Rating: 90 Neal Martin, vinous.com (Aug 2018)

*Case price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.

A tangy and fresh sparkling wine with grapefruit and lemon character. Full, zesty and fun. Rating: 90-90 James Suckling, www.jamessuckling.com(Jun 2018)

Simonsig Estate

Huguenot Jacques Malan arrived in the Cape from France in 1688 and to this day his family run the Simonsig estate, named after the imposing mountain that dominates the view. Over thirty years ago, the late Frans Malan produced South Africa's first méthode traditionnelle sparkling wine.
