Each of our extraordinary wines tells a unique story and is inspired by an aspect of Avondale’s innovative BioLOGIC® approach to wine farming. The 2006 vintage of Avondale’s La Luna red blend proudly displays the image of the moon on its label. The moon is one of the dominant influences that guides and governs biodynamic farming and and thus the name La Luna has been derived from this particular heavenly body. The moon represents the influence of the universe on our living systems and through observing the powerful phases of the moon, Avondale can fine tune its activities in the vineyard and cellar to be in harmony with the celestial forces. La Luna is a velvety blend of organically-grown, handpicked Cabernet Sauvignon (30%), Cabernet Franc (30%), Merlot (20%) and Petit Verdot (20%) grapes, which are whole bunch-pressed and matured in French Oak barrels for up to 16 months. This decadent red blend offers scents of cedar, truffles and dark fruit with subtle forest and herb undertones. Rich plum and mulberry flavours marry with soft tannins for a vibrant smoothness on the palate.
Armilla bears Avondale’s logo, a rendition of the Armillary sphere, an ancient astronomical instrument used to show the position of stars around the earth. It represents Avondale’s holistic approach to life on our farm where, from the minerals in the soil to the stars in the skies, all is combined in an energised, living system.
