Embrace easy-going summer flavours of Simonsig Chenin Blanc

Issued by: GC Communications on behalf of Simonsig Estate

Simonsig, the landmark family owned wine estate on the outskirts Stellenbosch, has just released the 2013 vintage of their  refreshing, summer quaffer, Simonsig Chenin Blanc.

With a new bright, yellow screw cap that reflects the wine’s playful, fruity nature, Simonsig Chenin Blanc 2013 is an essential summer fridge staple for many a wine lover. It is the ideal palate friendly wine when entertaining friends or to enjoy over an al fresco lunch. With a Chenin blanc track record dating back to 1968 as Simonsig Estate’s very first wine, you can be sure that this latest vintage is another winner. 

“Our idyllic terroir, northwest of Stellenbosch in the greater Simonsberg area is ideally suited for richly flavoured Chenin blanc, imparting an intense aromatic fruitiness coupled with delicious intensity and complexity to this abundantly textured wine,” says Simonsig cellarmaster Johan Malan.

Revealing youthful, fresh tropical notes leading into an explosion of apricot, ripe pears and kiwi fruit, the unwooded Simonsig Chenin Blanc 2013 is a must on hot summer days. Its cutting edge acidity captures the palate and leaves a lingering mouthfeel filled with tropical fruit flavours, making it the ideal partner to fresh seafood as well as seafood breyani, chicken breast with mango salad or even spicy Mexican tacos.

Simonsig Chenin Blanc 2013 is crafted in an easy, early drinking style and will reach its peak within two years of the vintage date. The wine retails from R40 per bottle and is available directly from the cellar or at leading wine outlets nationwide.
