Simonsig Tiara clinches Gold at Concours Mondial de Bruxelles

Friday, 24 May, 2013
Simonsig Estate has upped the stakes by clinching a Gold medal for its Bordeaux-style red, the Tiara 2009 at the 20th Concours Mondial de Bruxelle.
Proudly wearing the crown as this family owned estate's flagship red wine for over two decades, the Tiara 2009 competed against 8 200 wines and spirits from 50 producer countries in this prestigious competition held in Bratislava, Slovakia. On the local front this wine was also awarded a Gold medal by the 2012 Veritas Wine Awards.

“Great harmony, intensity and elegance are what we strive for when crafting our flagship red and there is no room for compromise on quality,” says Simonsig cellarmaster Johan Malan.

Driven by Cabernet Sauvignon (76%), Simonsig Tiara 2009 is a sensual yet substantial wine reminiscent of a deep red, textured Persian carpet. Its intense ripe black berry and cherry flavours with hints of cigar box, are enriched by whiffs of graphite adding depth and dimension to this full circle Bordeaux-style blend.

Johan recommends Simonsig Tiara 2009 with robust beef and venison dishes. The wine sells at R190 at the cellar door and select fine wine outlets countrywide.
