This wine was named after Frans Malan, the founder of Simonsig and the patriarch of the Malan family. The 19 vintages to date have built up an enviable track record with 4 Veritas Double Gold and 10 Gold Medals.
A Cape blend of Pinotage, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, matured for 16 months in French and American oak casks.
The Frans Malan Reserve will take you on an unforgettable journey to show you what a Cape style blend is all about. Sweet and spicy vanilla oak support the layers of seductive flavours of the three cultivars. The sweet fruit of Pinotage, well developed tannin structure of cabernet sauvignon and the dry lingering finish of Merlot makes this wine a true Cape Style blend in every way.
