Simonsig Kaapse Vonkel Brut 2019

Simonsig Kaapse Vonkel Brut 2019

An elegant Cap Classique with a light golden hue and fine persistent mousse. Fresh apple, white peach and citrus blossom entice on the nose.
A refined palate shows bursts of lemon, stone fruits and raspberry with a hint of yeasty complexity. Beautiful acidity contributes extraordinary length and finesse to this Cap Classique, making every occasion a memorable celebration.

The versatile Kaapse Vonkel can be served with scrambled eggs in the morning, sushi for lunch, duck for supper and an almond cake for dessert. Not to mention the obvious match with fresh oysters, or pâtés, and if all else fails, on its own as your companion.
Serve between 6-8°C

ageing : Kaapse Vonkel is ready to drink upon release. The 2019 has all the attributes to gain in richness and complexity for 4 to 6 years.

Frans Malan, the founder of Simonsig, was the first producer of Méthode Cap Classique in South Africa when he pioneered Kaapse Vonkel in 1971.

about the harvest: 

All the grapes are handpicked in bins.

in the cellar : The whole bunches are gently pressed in pneumatic presses to collect the purest juices named cuvée. After two days of settling the juice is fermented in stainless steel tanks at about 15-17°C with specially selected yeast strains. To add complexity to the wine, a portion of the Chardonnay is fermented in older French Oak barrels. No malolactic fermentation is done to preserve the freshness of the wine.
