British Master of Wine, Tim Atkin, released his sixth greatly anticipated 2017 South Africa Special report on 13 September. As one of the most comprehensive annual reviews of the South African wine industry, his scores are highly regarded in the international wine scene. Eight Simonsig wines were rated 90 points and above in his latest report.

“There wasn’t a single category that didn’t impress me this year… The MCC bubblies were also fantastic this year and are now deserving of serious attention.”

Cuvée Royale 2012 was our highest scoring wine with 94 points, followed by Frans Malan 2015 and Redhill Pinotage 2015 with 93 points, Chenin avec Chêne 2016 with 92 points, as well as Roussanne 2016, Kaapse Vonkel Brut 2015 and Woolworths’ Pinot Noir No Sulphur Added 2015 with 91 points and Chardonnay 2016 with 90 points.

The full report can be purchased on Tim Atkin’s website for R340.
