About this wine

Simonsig Kaapse Vonkel Brut is a classic Cap Classique with a light golden hue. Kaapse Vonkel transmits elegance and refinement in every luxurious bubble. On the nose, crisp green apples supported by subtle aromas of pear and shortbread biscuits. Refreshing fruit driven flavours followed by a delicate mineral finish on the palate. Beautiful acidity contributes extraordinary length and finesse to this Cap Classique, making every occasion a memorable celebration.

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

Grape varieties: 53% Chardonnay | 46% Pinot Noir | 1% Pinot Meunier

Ageing potential: Kaapse Vonkel is ready to drink upon release. The 2021 has all the attributes to gain in richness and complexity for at least 4 to 6 years.

Food pairing: Serve between 6-8°C. The versatile Kaapse Vonkel can be served with scrambled eggs in the morning, fragrant curry for lunch, fresh mussels for dinner or cake for dessert. Not to mention the obvious match with fresh oysters, pâtés, or if all else fails, on its own with the people you love.

Alcohol: 12.36% ABV

    string(578) "If Cabernet Sauvignon is the king of wines then Pinot Noir is the wine of kings. So delicate, pure, feminine and graceful, it is arguably the finest variety in the world, responsible for the great wines of Champagne and Burgundy. Temperamental, yes, and difficult to cultivate, but can any other grape offer such dimensions of flavour or intellectual gratification? I would struggle to find one stronger! Summer berry compote flavours, with redcurrant and pink petal aromas, it is often pale in the glass, yet can offer depth and vigour simply unachievable from any other grape."
