A new, exciting blend of Mourvèdre, Grenache Noir and Shiraz was introduced into the Simonsig range in 2016.
Style of Wine: Blended, soft fruity red
Grape varieties: Mourvèdre 40% | Shiraz 36% | Grenache Noir 24%

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 Mourvèdre, Grenache Noir and Shiraz 2017 did not disappoint, we were delighted with the quality and intense fruit spectrum from the various blocks

in the cellar : Or main aim with this wine was to preserve freshness of fruit and a moderate alcohol. 75% of this blend was picked earlier and underwent carbonic
maceration to enhance the red berry fruit and to obtain natural acidity. 24% of the blend spent 5 months in older barrels.
