(2015) The first of the house wines from Simonsig in Stellenbosch is an unspecified blend weighing in with 13.5% alcohol and bottled with a composite cork. I'm guessing Chenin Blanc might dominate, as this has the apple and pear fruit, hint of honey and freshness one would expect. In the mouth it is fruity and boldly flavoured: more very sweet, ripe apple and pear, a touch of spice and a glimpse of the more exotic with notes of pineapple and mango coming through. The finish is very nicely balanced, both sweetly easy to drink and savoury enough.
