2018 Brut Simonsig Estate
|Grapes||Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Pinot Meunier|
|Origin||South Africa, Stellenbosch|
The Kaapse Vonkel was the first traditional method sparkling wine produced in South Africa and it remains one of the best and certainly the best value. The classic Pinot Noir Chardonnay blend offering crisp bubbly refreshment but also a richer yeasty element that feels quite serious. For the same price as a bottle of Prosecco...there's no competition really. L&S (Feb 2020)
*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
2018 was a serious drought vintage in the Cape but Simonsig pulled off an adroit, classy sparkling wine. Made from the champagne grapes, it majors on chardonnay (55%), with 43% pinot noir and a dash of pinot meunier Drinking range: 2020 - Victoria Moore, The Daily Telegraph(Jul 2020)
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.
