Simonsig Pinotage: Discover South Africa's Signature Grape

Introduction

South Africa's unique contribution to the world of wine is Pinotage, a bold and distinctive red grape variety. Simonsig, one of the most respected Stellenbosch producers, offers a classic expression that showcases the grape's characteristic flavours and its affinity for a wide range of culinary pairings.

Tasting Notes

  • Appearance: Simonsig Pinotage displays a deep ruby red colour in the glass, hinting at its intensity and richness.
  • Nose: A burst of ripe blackberries, plums, and cherries greets the nose, interwoven with hints of spice, tobacco, and a subtle earthiness.
  • Palate: On the palate, the wine is medium-bodied and delivers concentrated dark fruit flavours followed by layers of spice, including black peppercorn and clove. Well-integrated tannins provide structure and balance, while a touch of acidity keeps the wine fresh and vibrant. The finish is long and lingering, with notes of dark fruit and a hint of smokiness.

Food Pairing Suggestions

Simonsig Pinotage's bold flavours and balanced structure make it a versatile companion to a variety of dishes:

  • BBQ & Grills: This wine is a natural match for the smoky char of grilled meats like lamb, beef, or venison. It complements the richness of the meat while cutting through the fattiness.
  • Spiced Dishes: The wine's spice notes harmonise beautifully with dishes featuring Moroccan spices, curries, and chili-based flavours.
  • Ripe Cheeses: Pair it with aged cheddar, Gouda, or a creamy blue cheese for a decadent combination.
  • Pizza & Pasta: For casual eats, try it with a flavorful pizza or tomato-based pasta like a hearty Bolognese.
