Wine Description: Another 1st for Simonsig, as they brought Gewurztraminer to South Africa which is tough to grow and gives small yields. A stunning late harvest Gewurztraminer with rose petal and lychee aromas leading to a palate of Turkish delight and honey.
Food Match: Chinese Cuisine, Sweet and Sour, Foie Gras and light citrus desserts.
Winery Information: Simonsig Estate is named after the magnificent views of the Simonsberg Mountain and is located in Stellenbosch 30 miles from Cape Town. Since French Huguenot Jacques Malan first set foot in the Cape in 1688, the Malan family has accumulated generations of wine know how which has resulted in them being one of the pioneering private wine estates of South Africa. Today three Malan brothers passionately tender their vines and steer the estate, constantly looking forward whilst keeping a respectful eye on the past. One of South Africa’s most awarded wineries.
Bottle Closure: Screw Cap
