This festive season, Avondale Wine Estate and esteemed Chef Reuben Riffel have collaborated to create the perfect Christmas gift for wine aficionados and foodies, or end-of-year gift for your corporate clients. A ‘surprise’ recipe, specially designed by Chef Reuben, will be included with every purchase of Avondale’s 2009 Viognier blend Cyclus. The recipe is uniquely created to pair beautifully with this handcrafted white blend for a magical culinary experience. Produced for maturation, Cyclus is a blend of organically-grown and hand-picked Viognier grapes (60%), with the balance made up of Chenin Blanc, Chardonnay and Semillion. This elegant summer wine holds all the promise of a quality Viognier blend, with a soft, rich nose of violets and peach and just a hint of frangipani. Cyclus is resplendent in its custom-designed gift packaging and is available for purchase at R204 per bottle or R1224 per case, which includes Chef Reuben’s exclusive recipe. To place your order for this beautiful gift call us now on 021 8631976 or email
