An interview with Johnathan Grieve

SIP WITH SARA:
Avondale "Qvevri" Red Blend 2019

AVONDALE "QVEVRI" RED BLEND 2019

Paarl, South Africa

What to expect:
“I don’t believe wine could be made much more naturally than this.” says winemaker Johnathan Grieve. Avondale is the the first South African winery to use Qvevri, egg- shaped terracotta clay pots that come from the country of Georgia. On the nose, a mélange of succulent red fruit – raspberry, mulberry, strawberry – overlaid with the unmistakable minerality and earthiness from the Qvevri. On the palate, a refreshing brightness lends incredible drinkability to this truly addictive and utterly delightful red.
