Avondale Camissa 2010

Avondale Camissa 2010

A blend of two flavourful varieties, Camissa arrest 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.

THE NAME
Camissa is the Khoi San name for Table Mountains, meaning "place of sweet water". We have called our gorgeous, fresh Rose wine Camissa as a reflection of Avondale's gratitude for the blessing of having pure spring waters flowing to our vines.
