AVONDALE - QVEVRI RED
Avondale is the first in South Africa to utilise Qvevri in our winemaking. These ancient clay vessels from the country Georgia dating back over 8000 years allows the wine to breathe as it ferments and as it ages in the clay brings a beautiful brightness of fruit and minerality to the wine. Abundance of succulent red fruit – raspberry, mulberry, strawberry with violets and spice as result from the whole-bunch. Unmistakable minerality/earthiness from the Qvevri on the nose are very inviting. This carries through on the palate with a bright natural acidity which gives a wonderful freshness and drinkability to the wine. The wine has a great balance between: the fine tannins of the whole bunch/bright natural acidity/abundance of fruit/ earthiness that keeps you intrigued and wanting more.
