With its subtle salmon hues and soft blushing scents, Camissa is the Avondale wine that epitomises our blessing that we make our wines from sweet waters. Camissa is made from 84% Muscat de Frontignan and 16% Mourvedre grapes. The vines are 21 years old, naturally cultivated and certified organic. They have a low yield of 4 tons per hectare of high quality fruit with intense flavours. The Muscat grapes were de-stemmed and left on the skins in the stainless tank for 3 or 4 days, with a stirring once or twice a day until natural fermentation started. The Mourvedre grapes were pressed as whole bunches, settled and fermented in the stainless steel tank. These flavourful varietals were then co-fermented and kept on the lees for 9 months. Camissa has a charming character. Rose petals, scented pelargonium and fresh red fruits of the earth arrest the nose. Hints of Turkish Delight and lemon zest attest to the perfect acidity of this wine; for Camissa may appear sweet but it finishes completely dry.
