Cellar 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.
Bottling Date: 30 April 2019. 11 300 bottles.
FoodSuggest The perfect wine for lunch or a light supper with friends. Great with sushi, salads, grilled seafood or charcuterie platters.

Variety Pinot Noir
Vineyard 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.
