Number of wine boxes of 3 bottles to add to basket:

The opinion of the sommelier

Known worldwide for the quality of its pinotage, Domaine l’Avenir is one of the best estates in South Africa. Far & Near will impress you with its deep and intense fruity aromas, that remind great pinot noir of Burgundy but coupled with a dark chocolate and spicy flavour, typical of South African Pinotages. 

 

Terroir

Stellenbosch is the main winemaking region in South Africa. It’s located not far from Cape Town. Therefore it is quite close to False Bay that provides to the vines refreshing sea winds. You can experience them when you are standing in the vines. It protects grapes from diseases and balances summer temperatures that can be high.

lecepage Grape variety

Pinotage was born in Stellenbosch after a biologist mixed pinot noir and cinsault, a grape varity from Southern France. Therefore, this unique variety is known for displaying very unique range of flavours, like chocolate and plum.

lemillesime Vintage

A great vintage with limited harvested quantity there is what is to be remembered of the 2016 vintage in Stellenbosch. Winemakers did not see any rain for almost 7 months, which is quite uncommon in this rainy region near Cap Town. This relative drought explains the low quantity and the high quality. 

lerecoltant A winemaker, a family

Domaine l’Avenir was created by Mar Wiehe in 1992. It quickly rose to icon status thanks to the quality of its Pinotage. In 2010, l’Avenir was taken over by AdVini, a leading French winemaking company known to be expert in terroir wines. Naretha Ricome, who learnt how to run a winery in France before returning home, now rules the estate on behalf on AdVini.
