Simonsig Vin de Liza Noble Late Harvest Chenin Blanc: A South African Sweet Wine Delight


South Africa's Stellenbosch region, renowned for its exceptional wines, is home to the celebrated Simonsig Vin de Liza Noble Late Harvest Chenin Blanc. This luscious sweet wine embodies the magic achieved when the noble rot fungus (Botrytis cinerea) concentrates sugars and flavours within Chenin Blanc grapes. Prepare your palate for a symphony of sweetness, complexity, and perfect balance.

Tasting Notes

  • Appearance: Simonsig Vin de Liza shimmers with a vibrant golden hue, hinting at the rich sweetness within.
  • Nose: Fragrant aromas burst forth, showcasing an intricate tapestry of dried apricots, succulent peaches, candied orange peel, and the unmistakable honeyed character of botrytis. Delicate hints of toasted nuts and wildflowers add further depth.
  • Palate: A luxurious wave of sweetness washes over the palate, delivering concentrated flavours of ripe stone fruits, tangy citrus marmalade, and a touch of tropical pineapple. The sweetness is masterfully balanced by a vibrant acidity, ensuring the wine remains refreshing and never cloying. A lingering finish leaves traces of honey, spice, and a subtle minerality.

Food Pairing Suggestions

The decadent sweetness of Simonsig Vin de Liza makes it an ideal partner for a variety of dishes:

  • Rich Desserts: Pair it with indulgent desserts like crème brûlée, tarte tatin, or a classic lemon tart for a heavenly match.
  • Blue Cheese: The wine's acidity cuts through the richness of creamy blue cheeses like Stilton or Roquefort, creating a delightful contrast of flavours.
  • Foie Gras: This classic pairing is a testament to the wine's ability to harmonise with rich, savoury flavours.
  • Asian Flavours: Try it with mildly spiced Thai or Vietnamese dishes for a surprising and delightful combination.
