Simonsig Estate has been ranked amongst South Africa’s top wine producers with three wines listed in the 2013 Top 100 SA Wines.

Simonsig Cuvée Royale 2007 is one of only three Méthode Cap Classique wines to make the cut this year with two Simonsig red wines, the acclaimed Simonsig Red Hill Pinotage 2009 and Merindol Syrah 2010 also taking centre stage. 

Cuvée Royale, the Prestige Cuvée of this family owned estate, South Africa’s first Méthode Cap Classique producer, also triumphed as the best Blanc de Blancs at the 2012 Amorim Méthode Cap Classique Challenge with the 2007 vintage making it the ultimate must-have for bubbly enthusiasts. 

The 2013 Top 100 Simonsig Redhill Pinotage 2009 comes from a long lineage of Top 10 Pinotages and is a Veritas Double Gold medalist. The regal Merindol Syrah 2010, a top tier single vineyard Shiraz, is named after the French origins of the Malan family coat of arms.

Established in 2011, the 2013 Top 100 Wines, had a record entry of 440 of wines competing for a place amongst South Africa’s finest.
