Wine of Origin South Africa.

In the vineyard

The 2018 vintage was very demanding and stimulating due to the prolonged drought, perhaps the worst in the last 100 years, accompanied by the restrictions on water use imposed by local authorities. The skills and experience of the vineyard and winery team allowed Simonsig to cope with hot and dry weather conditions. In the vineyard and in the cellar, Simonsig has adapted his procedures to minimize the effect of the lack of water. However, the dry climate during the season had some advantages: the vines were healthy, with smaller grapes but with great intensity. The harvest took place in blocks, following the different levels of ripeness, obtaining perfect grapes for winemaking.

In the cellar

The grapes are harvested by hand and the whole bunches are delicately pressed in pneumatic presses to collect the purest juices called cuvée. After two days the must is left to ferment in stainless steel tanks at about 14-16 ° C, with specially selected yeasts.
