STAFF PICK SINGLE VINEYARD 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 wine has firm tannins and an elegant, juicy mouth-feel whilst the subtle oak regime gives the wine backbone but also softens the taste experience.  Ripe fruit and mocha follow-through from the nose making this wine a perfect companion to full-flavoured foods and red meats.

Aroma

Ripe purple plums and dark cherries provide an intense upfront fruit explosion which develops into a slight earthiness with whiffs of sweet spice and mocha/chocolate
