Simonsig Cabernet Sauvignon / Shiraz 2017

This wine displays a dark ruby red with a youthful rim. Vibrant notes of fresh black berries and cherries. The youthful yet integrated tannins express the berry flavours with hints of white pepper and cloves on the palate. Subtle oak notes lingers on the aftertaste.

Napolitano pasta, meat lover’s Pizza, Beef Carpaccio, decadent hamburger and definitely a festive barbeque.

in the vineyard : The 2017 vintage was a challenging one that led to a smaller, but very promising harvest for the Stellenbosch region. The dry warm weather produced grapes with small berries and great fruit intensity. The cooler nights and warmer days during the ripening period resulted in grapes with excellent colour and fruit formation. The Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz 2017 did not disappoint, we were delighted with the quality and intense fruit spectrum from the various blocks.
