Simonsig 'Avec Chene' Chenin Blanc 2015
Simonsig Wine Estate is synonymous with the history of the South African wine industry, the Stellenbosch wine region, and the Malan family name.
These elements are intertwined in this family-owned farm, where the late Frans Malan produced the first bottle of our much-loved Kaapse Vonkel, South Africaʼs first Méthode Cap Classique made in the classic bottle-fermented style. He is also honoured for co-founding the thriving Stellenbosch Wine Route, a first in its time.
Nose: Floral and fresh citrus notes with under-tones of freshly cut pineapple.
Palate: The palate is filled with mouth-watering flavoured tropical fruits like pears and apricots.
Finish: The Chenin Avec Chêne has a real fresh zesty acidity with slight notes of oakiness giving this wine a great balance and structure.
