A medium bodied, fruity expression of Pinotage, with fresh cherries, raspberries and a touch of sweet spiciness, typical to Pinotage.

Paying homage to the famed terroir of Stellenbosch’s historic wine region, L’Avenir was founded in 1992 by Mauritius native Marc Wiehe. Under the oenological direction of winemakers Dirk Coetzee, Mattheus Thabo and Francois Conradie, the winery in the foothills of the Simonsberg in Stellenbosch produces now a well-endowed and award-winning wine portfolio of wines, distinguished by their unmistakably South African character with an elegant touch of French flair, with the two classic South African grape varieties Chenin Blanc and Pinotage, as the cornerstone of the South African wine industry, forming the main focus of L’Avenir.

L’Avenir vinifies many of their reds, including their Horizon Pinotage, with mostly whole berries. This means they gently destem the fruit while keeping the berries as whole as possible. This enables a special intracellular fermentation to take place within the skins, adding even more juicy fruit to the palate.
