Simonsig unveils new Kaapse Vonkel Satin Nectar Rosé
Simonsig unveiled a new pink bubbly named Kaapse Vonkel Satin Nectar Rosé 2017.
According to the company, Simonsig Kaapse Vonkel was the Cape's first bottle-fermented sparkling wine released in 1971 and is well known for their Brut, Brut Rosé, Cuvée Royale and the most recently released Satin Nectar demi-sec.
Blended for vivacious fresh and fruity expressions, the cuvée is a composition of 72% Pinot Noir, 27% Pinotage and 1% Pinot Meunier that is bottle fermented in the traditional French method and spends at least 12 months on lees to develop gorgeous creamy complexity.
Johan Malan, Head of Production at Simonsig Estate said in a statement: "Extended lees contact adds to the finesse of the wine, delivered by a delicate string of fine bubbles. The colour of the Satin Nectar Rosé is equally classy, more copper than bright pink, with a palate perfectly balanced by fresh acidity and fruity flair. This is a very attractive MCC, both visually and on the palate."
“The components for the Simonsig Satin Nectar Rosé 2017 did not disappoint and we were delighted with the quality and intense fruit spectrum from the various blocks,” said Malan.
Cape Wine Master, Heidi Duminy. “The beauty of pink bubbly is not only about how it tastes but just as much as how it makes you feel."
"It’s impossible not to fall for its gorgeous blush colour before it even touches your lips with a softly sweet taste of utter joy and euphoria. All this care in the crafting presents in an exuberant glass of happiness that is effortlessly tantalising. Expect vibrant expressions of crushed summer berries, candied apples, pink peach and whimsical Turkish delight.”
