Beautiful Avondale is home to some of the finest wines in South Africa. For over 300 years the vineyards have produced premium grapes – today Avondale is driven by the desire to produce the best wine in the Cape. Avondale wines exhibit a tremendous sense of place. From the fynbos clad slopes of the Klein Drakenstein mountains to the cooling banks of the Berg River comes fruit that is typically reflective of its mediterranean heritage. No one makes wine like we do. At Avondale we’re getting back to nature – but we are using 21st century science, technology and research in the process. It started a few years ago when we made a simple choice: because wine is a natural (and delicious) product, producing it shouldn’t harm the environment in any way. After all, we want the Avondale farm to be here long after we’ve gone, creating the same delicious wine. And we believe the best way to do that is to make it a sustainable business, one that always works in harmony with the earth. Every step of the way, a holistic, systems-based approach and fine attention to detail has ensured that today, Avondale makes extraordinary wines approved by Mother Nature.
Camissa is the Khoi San name for Table Mountain, meaning “place of sweet water”. We have called our gorgeous, fresh Rosè wine Camissa as a reflection of Avondale’s gratitude for the blessing of having pure spring waters flowing to our vines. A blend of two flavourful varieties, Camissa arrests the nose with rose petals, scented pelargonium and fresh red fruits of the earth. Hints of Turkish Delight and lemon zest attest to the perfect acidity of this wine; for Camissa may appear sweet but it finishes completely dry.
