It’s always exciting when our wines get international listings and Avondale’s circle of life expands across the world!  Sweden’s government-owned monopoly of liquor stores Systembolaget listed Jonty’s Duck Pekin White some years ago to a great response, and for quite some time now we have been working with our agent to get Jonty’s Duck Pekin Red on Swedish shelves too.  A silky blend of Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot, Jonty’s Duck Pekin Red offers an explosion of fruit on the palate, hints of dark chocolate and ground coffee, integrated well with very elegant tannins.  We’re delighted that this characterful, slow made, organic wine from Paarl will be a representative of proudly South African wine-making in the Land of the Midnight Sun.
