L'Avenir Single Block Pinotage is a special red wine for which only the best 14 barrels have been selected. The grapes from which the Pinotage was made come from a single vineyard in the highest vineyard of the winery (Block 2). The bouquet is a heavenly composition of dried cranberries and violets, surrounded by a hint of chocolate. The fruity freshness continues on the palate, the cherry aromas are accompanied by sweet spices. The well integrated oak notes and the rich texture give the complex red wine its final touch. L'Avenir Single Block Pinotage is a pleasure in itself, but it is also an excellent companion to dark meat or duck with a fruity sauce.

L‘ Avenir – South African character with french flair

The winery L´Avenir is ocated in the golden triangle between Paarl, Stellenbosch and Franschhoek and can look back on its long history dating back to the 17th century. Originally a part of the estate Weltevrede, 1912 the first vines were planted. The winery has been given its current name when it became independent and was taken over by Mark Wiehe. At that point in time, L´Avenir was a famous grape supplier, however it did not produce wines. This changed, the go-ahead for the unique boutique winery has been given and the name (“avenir “ means future in French) was the program, after all the future belonged to the winery. L´Avenir gained recognition very fast for its unmistakable creations of the grape varieties Pinotage and Chenin Blanc – until today the South African national grapes are the showpiece of the winery. In the year 2005 the family Laroche acquired the winery and seven years later joined forces with the family JeanJean to found Advini. A new era began for L´Avenir that has become a part of the company.

Specialist for Pinotage and Chenin Blanc

Today L´Avenir belongs to the leading boutique wineries in Stellenbosch, which has specialized on Chenin Blanc and knows how to combine their authentic South African character with French flair. The result: elegant wines, that mirror their terroir. The grape vines, whose grapes are used for the flagship wines of the Single Block Range, are partly up to 60 years old. The pinotage stands out due to its fine structure, the flavours of ripe cherries and a hint of dark chocolate. The Chenin Blanc on the other hand impresses by rich and complex fruit nuances which are accentuated by almonds and light notes of honey. In the vineyard as well as in the cellar L´Avenir attaches utmost importance to innovation – and the experimentations are rewarded since this creativity led to the Glenrosé, South Africa´s first Pinotage Rosél, the grapes of which come from a single vineyard.

A heart for humans and nature

The winery does not only operate innovatively in the wine production, but it contributes to the future as well being committed to sustainability and being active in social sectors. Additionally, L´Avenir is a member of the Pebbles Project, which supports disadvantaged children and their families living in the Winelands of the Western Cape in areas including education, health and diet. The winery has a heart for its guests as well offering an elegant ambience in the 4-star-country lodge where the guests can escape from the hustle and bustle and enjoy the view on the gently rising vineyards.
