The Malan family's winemaking history dates back to 1688 when Jacques Malan arrived in South Africa. In 1953, one of his descendants, Frans Malan planted vineyards on De Hoop, in the foothills of the Simonsbert Mountain outside Stellenbosch. 1968 saw the introduction of his first wines, sold under the Simonsig Estate label. Today, Simonsig is owned by Frans' sons Francois, Pieter and Johan. Francois is the managing director and viticulturist, Pieter is the business director, and Johan is the chief winemaker and cellar master. Johan makes all the wines except for Pinotage which is made by assistant winemaker Debbie Burden. She was named South Africa's Woman Winemaker of the Year 2005. The estate includes 518 acres of vineyards planted on sandstone, decomposed granite and shale soils. Since 2010, Simonsig wines are Certified Sustainable.

Tasting notes
Tropical fruit, green pepper with hints of asparagus. The crisp acidity and mineral notes ensures a lingering fresh finish.

Technical notes
Sourced from the cool climate Groenekloof in the Darling region. Limited skin contact is done on some batches to maximize the fruit without losing acidity. Fermented in stainless steel and aged 3-6 months on the lees with stirring.
