"A little Gevrey". This is truly one of Burgundy's greatest domaines. No other winemaker manages to seduce such power from the Pinot Noir grape without losing that inimitable elegance. There are no poor vintages at this domaine.

Avondale Wine

The picturesque 160-hectare farm that is today known as Avondale has been under cultivation for more than 300 years. Early records show that the land was one of the first in the Paarl Valley to be allocated specifically for the production of wine grapes. Avondale is now home to the Grieve Family and 25 farm worker families. As the pioneers of Vital Health Foods, South Africa’s leading health food company, the Grieves have an innate focus on well-being that encompasses the land and its community of people. Avondale are committed to providing fair and decent living and working conditions to enable their people to enjoy healthy, balanced lives.


Tasting Notes

Armilla is rich and round on the palate: a perfect balance of toasty, warm, hazelnut bread and fresh quince. The wine is fresh, effervescent and lively on the palate; complemented by a full velvety mouth feel – layer after layer after layer.

Food Matches

Delicious with pan fried scallops with a garden salad.
