Simonsig Steen 2017 Commemorative Magnum


This wine was specially made to commemorate the very first Steen to be bottled by Frans Malan the founder and patriarch of Simonsig. In 2017 the Simonsig Chenin Blanc reached the incredible milestone of its 50th consecutive vintage since 1968.

The final cuvee is a perfect composition between the leaner, crisp minerality of the earliest picking combined with the ripe white pear and yellow apple of the middle two pickings and finally the richness of the super ripe Chenin. This adds the caramelised apple, raisin and fynbos honey to the aromas that cover the palate. The silky viscous texture of the wine adds to the palate weight and mouth feel. The oak influence is subdued and respects the fruit. A beautiful Steen that will continue to develop over time and a wine that always shows best in a magnum.
