New release: Simonsig Wine Estate Chenin Avec ChĂȘne 2017


3 May 2019  -  Simonsig Wine Estate

Simonsig Wine Estate, just outside Stellenbosch, releases new Chenin Avec ChĂȘne vintage.

The 2017 vintage marks our 50th year of growing, harvesting and bottling Chenin Blanc on the farm, and with so many years of experience, we are pleased to announce that the Chenin Avec Chêne has made it through the rigorous tasting panel of British Airways and is now served in their first class cabins. Of course you don’t need to be in the skies to enjoy our wine, and with Drink Chenin Day around the corner, we invite you to come and try it at our tasting room, or even on the comfort of your couch by purchasing it online.

More about Simonsig Chenin

Simonsig Chenin Blanc was the first wine released by founder Frans Malan in 1968. The experience of more than four decades of working with Chenin resulted in this new wine. We realised that Chenin grown on weathered shale gives the most intense perfumed fruit. Gently handled oak enhances the depth of flavour without obscuring the delicious fruitiness. The name means "Chenin with oak".
