Avondale is one of the pioneers of amphora wine-making in South Africa, and our use of these original wine-making vessels has mostly been to use the bright-fruit amphora portions of our wines in our blending process.    Wines made in these fired clay vessels have a character that is distinctly different from the same vintage fermented in oak barrels or stainless steel tanks.  They bring to the blending process a particularly clean, fruit-driven portion which brings out a unique expression in Avondale wines, such as Cyclus 2014, which has a 20% portion of amphora wine; and Anima 2015, which has a15% portion of amphora wine.  As the interest in amphora-made wines increases in the wine-making regions of the world, and is on the rise in South Africa, we have decided to release a 1000 bottle exclusive edition of Avondale Amphora.  This is a red wine made in our amphorae from 100% Mourvèdre grapes in a Beaujolais style.  Fresh, fruity, Avondale Amphora is designed to be chilled, and is a perfect option for red wine drinking in Summer.  The wine will be made available to pre-order from the Avondale’s Members Club. So if you are not yet a member, this is a good time to sign up here and make sure you are on our pre-order list. For a limited time Avondale Amphora will also be included on the wine list of FABER at Avondale.  Book now!
