Avondale’s Amphora Experience https://www.avondalewine.co.za/news/avondales-amphora-experience-2/ Wed, 13 Dec 2017 07:44:21 +0000 https://www.avondalewine.co.za/?p=59078 While amphora wines may be a current trend for some, Avondale has been making it and blending portions of it into a number of our premium wines for a number of years. Currently available releases such as Cyclus 2015 and Anima 2015 are uniquely enlivened with portions of amphora wine. We have also recently released Avondale Amphora, a wine made of 100% Mourvèrde grapes in a Beaujolais style.

Avondale’s Amphora Winemaking – Experience Now https://www.avondalewine.co.za/news/avondales-amphora-experience/ Fri, 10 Nov 2017 09:56:23 +0000 https://www.avondalewine.co.za/?p=51723 We find that the beauty of the amphorae’s subtle breath makes for wines with bright, unadulterated fruit and minerality, and softer tannin structures. They are ideal vessels for the whole-bunch fermented, slow-made wines where the focus is on giving the wine time and opportunity to clearly express its true grape character.
