JONTY’S DUCKS PEKIN WHITE 2016
Avondale is seen as experts in biodynamic and organic farming and wine making where everything starts in the soil and it is believed that Terra est vita (soil is life). A 300-hectare, family-owned winery situated at the foot of the spectacular Klein Drakenstein Mountains in the gorgeous Paarl Valley. They are slow wines where the grapes have been hand-picked and the vines have been individually cared for through sustainable and natural viticulture methods.
Avondale not only makes top quality wines using bio-dynamic farming principles, it also offers a fully organic wine alternative and is focused on being a carbon neutral wine estate.
“Another lovely, fullish, avourful, ripe but balanced, seriously stony and fruity white here from Avondale,
a staunchly organic producer based in Paarl. This has quite amazing depth and length in the price
category. Lovely smoky minerality. I’d almost think this was being sold at 50% off the regular price.” – 90points, Wine Align
