    L'Avenir Provenance Stellenbosch Classic 2018


    - Top 100 Wines of South Africa at the National Wine Challenge

    - Double Platinum at the National Wine Challenge

    An elegant and timeless Stellenbosch blend of 51% Cabernet Sauvignon, 32% Merlot and 17% Cabernet Franc.  Medium-bodied, exhibiting a fine balance between fruit and spiciness, with a smooth and refined texture. Another consecutive dry and early vintage for Stellenbosch, L' Avenir's wines have shown notable elegance with silky tannins, delicate fruit flavours and lower alcohols. 

    What can you expect?

    A deep garnet red, this wine offers attractive notes of fynbos, cloves and subtle cinnamon. All complemented by lively freshness of raspberries and ripe cherries. On the palate, this wine is medium-bodied with fine-grained, silky tannins. Seductive notes of subtle spice, macerated strawberries and a hint of dried tobacco can also be detected. Refined and sophisticated, with a delicate balance between finesse and restrained power.

    Food pairing?

    This finely structured yet serious wine will bring the best out of char-grilled ostrich fillets.

    Aging potential:

    These wines are specifically drinking well at a younger age, but great balance and a fine tannin structure promise impressive ageing potential.
