Avondale Cabernet-Shiraz Blend Jontys Ducks 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Lots of Blackcurrant, liquorice, with a hint of dark chocolate and ground coffee. The wine has an explosion of fruit on the palate and well integrated, elegant tannins to support it. Layers of fruit and silky finish with a lingering after taste.<br/><br/>

Our ethos, Terra Est Vita meaning ‘Soil is Life’ encapsulates our view of Avondale Estate as a dynamic living system where soil, water and energy; plants, animals and people;even our buildings, are part of a complex web of relationships and networks, interconnected and interdependent.   Premium Quality Wines – Our commitment to promoting life does not only lead to Mother Nature’s approval of our healthy, balanced vineyard ecosystem; it also ensures the premium quality of Avondale’s unique, naturally-made, slow wines. The vigour of our well-tended vines leads to excellent grapes bursting with fresh flavours that are evident in our individually-styled, classic wines, so full of life and character.   Certified Organic – Avondale is certified organic and we practice bio-dynamic agriculture; but we go beyond both these beneficial systems of natural farming by also using the best 21st Century science, technology and knowledge to enhance sustainability.   Enjoying Our Wines – When we despatch Avondale wines for worldwide distribution in select markets, we hold the intention that they will play a role in enhancing healthy balance and affirming joy in the lives of those that take pleasure in them. We are mindful that whenever an Avondale wine is part of a family dinner or a celebration; an exciting gathering or a solitary interlude we are all connected in those moments by a shared love of life.

A Bordeaux blend (Shiraz, Merlot and Cabernet) so distinctive, so technically perfect! Sweetness of fruit, upfront dissipating into a chocolate, almost meaty whole. Lingering. http://www.spittoon.biz/south_african_wine_brief_notes.html

Avondale Jonty's Ducks 2007: Einen Wein-Titan bekommen Sie hier mit breitschultrigen Früchten aus dem Reich dunkler Waldbeeren und geprägt von Eichenholz. Gekleidet in ein Gewand aus ledriger Tanninstruktur, strahlt er Harmonie aus. Er muss atmen können, damit sein Holzaroma zurücktritt. Geben Sie ihm etwas Zeit und viel Raum, damit er seinen Reichtum entfalten kann."Jonty's Ducks" stammt aus 100 % ökologischem Weinanbau. Der 2007er Jahrgang erhielt kürzlich offiziell sein Zertifikat als Wein aus biologischer Landwirtschaft. Es ist ein Wein für Global Player! Zuhause in der weiten Welt, um Nasenlänge der Masse voraus, erfolgreich, souverän, friedlich, im Einklang mit sich selbst!    Weingut: Avondale WinesAnbauregion: PaarlRebsorten: 50% Shiraz, 35% Merlot, 15 % Cabernet SauvignonInhalt: 0,75 lAlkoholgehalt: 3,5 Vol.%Säuregehalt: 5,75 g/lRestsüße: 2,75 g/lEmpfohlene Serviertemperatur: 16-18°CLagerfähigkeit: 5 -7 Jahre ab JahrgangFassreife: in Barriques gereift (12 Monate) Rotwein > Südafrika > Paarl - Franschhoek
