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

Navitas has an extraordinary colour and a rich nose of dark stewed fruits, cloves and cinnamon. Flavours of white pepper and plum are combined with silky tannins and a smooth but lively minerality to provide an exceptional concentration of fine fruit on the palate.

Food Matches

Great with gamey food. Try with braised pheasant with chestnuts and game chips.
