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.

Avondale Green Duck The Duke 2005: Mit "Green Duck" widmet sich dieser Wein endlich der enorm wichtigen biologisch-dynamischen Anti-Terror-Einheit auf Avondale, nämlich der Division aus Pekingenten zur Vernichtung von Weinbergschnecken, um auf chemische Keulen verzichten zu können.Hier dominiert der Cabernet Franc. Der Wein zeigt ein komplexes Aromenspektrum, was auf die verschiedenen Sorten, die hier verblendet wurden, zurück zu führen ist. Besonders dominant sind Cassis, Zeder und Olivenbaumblätter, am Gaumen wirkt er voll und weitreichend und ist von lang anhaltendem Geschmack.    Weingut: Avondale WinesAnbauregion: PaarlRebsorten: Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, MalbecInhalt: 0,75 lAlkoholgehalt: 14,5 Vol.%Säuregehalt: 5,75 g/lRestsüße: 2,5 g/lEmpfohlene Serviertemperatur: 16-18°CLagerfähigkeit: 7 - 10 Jahre ab JahrgangFassreife: in Barriques gereift (19 Monate) Rotwein > Südafrika > Paarl - Franschhoek
