With a delightful new screw
cap that's embodies the wine's playful, fruity nature, the eminently quaffable
Simonsig Chenin Blanc 2012 is an essential summer fridge staple for many a wine
lover. It is the ideal palate friendly wine when entertaining friends or to
enjoy at an al fresco lunch. With a Chenin Blanc track record dating back to
1968, when Simonsig Estate's patriarch Frans Malan released his first wine, you
can be sure that this latest vintage is another winner.
"Chenin blanc was the first
wine released by my father more than 40 years ago. Our idyllic terroir,
northwest of Stellenbosch in the greater Simonsberg area imparts an intense
aromatic fruitiness coupled with delicious intensity and complexity to this
richly textured wine," says Simonsig cellarmaster Johan Malan.
Revealing youthful, fresh
tropical notes leading into an explosion of pears, guavas and sweet melon, the
unwooded Simonsig Chenin Blanc 2012 is a must on hot summer days. Its cutting
edge acidity captures the palate and leaves a lingering mouthfeel filled with
tropical fruit pockets making it the ideal partner to fresh seafood as well as
traditional breyani or even spicy Mexican tacos.
The Simonsig Chenin Blanc 2012
is created in an easy, early drinking style and will reach its peak within
two years of the vintage date. The wine retails from R38 per bottle and is
available directly from the cellar or at leading wine outlets nationwide.
