Monis
History

Steeped in tradition, Monis has the longest established range of fortified wines in the industry and enjoys an unsurpassed reputation for quality. The string of awards we have garnered over the years bears witness to this.

Monis owes its name to Roberto Moni, an immigrant from Tuscany who established himself in Paarl in 1906. He started an import business called the Italian Warehouse where he traded in olive oil, cheese and wine whilst making his own range of natural and fortifi ed wines including a Marsala, a Moscato and a selection of sherries and ports in a cellar he purchased in
Paarl.

This proved to be such a success that he changed the name of his business to Monis Wineries Enterprise Ltd in 1921. By 1930, the Monis winery was well-established.

In 1956, Moni opened the new Monis cellars with its own private railway siding. That same year, Monis wines were amongst the first wines to be exported to France. As wine merchant and winemaker, Moni came full circle from wine importer to wine exporter. He stayed actively involved in the wine industry until his death in 1972.

1966 signalled a new era for Monis, when it was sold to the company that is known as Distell today.

Monis Medium Cream

This medium cream is silky smooth with hint of sweetness and a nutty character. Bright, pale, natural gold in colour, the sherry holds butterscotch and pine needle on the nose.

Monis Muscadel

It has a very complex nose with strong Muscat, raisins, Christmas cake, cinnamon, marzipan and subtle citrus flavours. On the palate this well-balanced Muscadel has a delicate woodiness with a soft, smooth opulence ending with a very long aftertaste. It promises to open up more flavours with every taste.

Monis Pale Dry

Monis Pale Dry

This pale dry is aromatic and crisp with a refreshingly dry character. The flavours are diverse yet well balanced and on the nose the complex combination of salt and citrus lead to ripe pear and nuts. On the palate the sherry is clean with mineral notes, a dry lime flavour and cashew nuts that end in a rich, nutty and long, dry finish.

Monis Pale Dry

Monis Vintage Port

Monis Vintage Port

It has a deep ruby core with wonderful ripe, red berry aromas followed by dark cherry and chocolate with delightful fragrant whiffs and hints of bramble and ripe plum. On the palate the port unfolds slowly as rich and elegant yet relatively dry with youthful flavours of ripe berry. Supple tannins lend a super, peppery grip with great balance and vinosity and a lovely spirity lift in the tail.
