This Premier Cru Chardonnay has a beautiful nose of wild meadow flowers, acacia blossom, intense chalky minerality, a range of citrus and apple fruit with a touch of smoke. It is finessed and focused on the palate with lemon zing, green apple, a powerful vein of minerality, earthiness and that lovely tension that is so desirable in crus Chablis.
This wine proves why we blend Cab Sauv, Franc and Merlot together; each varietal complements the others! This rich and velvety red doles out the dark fruits, mocha, vanilla, anise, coconut, mint and violets. It is stylish with excellent length. Drink over the next 8 years.
Charmat style blend using CO2 retained from fermentation of 90% Pinot Noir with 10% Pinot Gris, from various sites. Aromas of fresh red berry fruits, lively bubbles and creamy notes with strawberry and cherries on a gently creamy palate, crisp and refreshing.

This is the new white companion to the Root: 1 Carménère. Starts off with lime, grapefruit and nectarine qualities and then shifts into more herbal and mineral elements. Lightweight, crisp and dry. Perfect for the summer months of patio sipping.
Avondale is a biodynamic winery in South Africa's Paarl region. Owner Johnathan Grieve employs a "posse" of ducks that patrol the vineyard looking for snails. The snails apparently eat the vines. This fruit cocktail of Chenin Blanc, Roussanne, Muscat de Frontignan, Viognier and Sémillon is pale straw in colour with a minerally, peachy nose and a note of cinnamon; it's medium-bodied, dry with a peach and citrus flavour, well balanced with good length.
