In 1990 Johan Malan travelled to Champagne on a study tour. He returned with a dream to make a Simonsig Prestige Cuvee from the finest and most delicate Chardonnay cuvees capable of long evolution to achieve the pinnacle of Cap Classique quality.

Chardonnay lends the delicacy and finesse to the Cuvee. It develops very slowly in the bottle, which explains the 5 years the Cuvee Royale spends in the cool cellars before release.

TASTING NOTES
Delightful golden yellow colour with a very fine mousse forming on the surface. Upfront flavours of roasted almonds and ripe yellow apple occur on the nose. Extended maturation under ideal conditions allows the yeast to release warm biscuity flavours, adding fullness, elegance and complexity to the wine. This wine shows an excellent balance between the layers of citrus fruit deriving from Chardonnay and secondary flavours from slow maturation, all adding to an unique Blanc de Blancs with excellent complexity and character.
