BLUSH SPRING DRINK HELDERBERG
Another day another dollar

When you stop and think about it, there's really very little in the average day that makes it stand out as memorable.

Here's an example: what was the highlight of your day three days ago? Unless the timing works out perfectly and you just got hitched, chances are it's not that easy to remember.

But that's the way it has to be. By definition if everything was epic, nothing would be epic.

Except for us. We're special. Because we bet you remember everything you've ever bought from us and if you don't, please feel free to refresh your memory with today's latest deals.

About

Avontuur Estate has been producing quality wine grapes for more than 140 years and this historical commitment is still reflected today in the range of award-winning wines. New vineyards allow winemaker Jan van Rooyen extra scope to refresh, fine-tune and cross blend. The region is producing some of the countries most layered and intense fruit-driven reds in the country. The passion that Philip Taberer and Jan are investing in the farm is clearly evident in the quality of wines produced from these pristine vineyards.

Tasting notes

The creamy palate is instantly attractive and well-balanced with enough acidity provided by the backbone of the Chardonnay. It’s a full-bodied wine for a Rosé with complexity added by the Pinot Noir.

Aroma

It’s a fruit basket of aromas with melon, pomegranate and cranberry dominating.

Product Features

  • Case of 6

  • Varietals: 56% Pinot Noir, 44% Chardonnay

Vinification

Harvested separately. The Chardonnay was pressed lightly, cold-settled & fermented to dryness. The Pinot Noir was harvested before the onset of full-colour development in the vineyard and pressed after 2 hours of skin contact. Fermented separately and blended after three months of maturation on the yeast lees, which in the case of the Chardonnay was a bit of an experiment with a yeast usually used for Sauvignon Blanc.

Viticulture

The 2 blocks of Pinot Noir Vineyard are situated midway up the Estate on a sea-facing slope. The vines are trellised and manicured for early harvesting as required for this style of wine. The excellent Chardonnay block is located just behind the cellar on an Eastern slope and is trellised. Lying at the foothills of the Helderberg, Avontuur is blessed with well-drained Clovelly and Hutton soils.
