Welcome to Avani Syrah winery, located in Red Hill South.
Not only are the wines magnificent, but Shashi and Devendra are two of the most accommodating people we've ever met.
We spent a superb four hours with Shashi and Devendra, tasting magnificent wines and learning about their production.
All wines produced are organic, with no chemicals, pesticides or sulphur used.
The grapes are grown without the use of irrigation and rely solely on rainfall.
They carefully craft Pinot Noir, Syrah, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, Pinot Gris with skin contact and Sauvignon Blanc.
Shashi believes in nurturing the vineyard and this is evident in her wines.
Avani is an ancient Sanskrit word that means ‘the earth’.
Planted in 1987 on gentle north facing slopes in Red Hill South on Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula, our 4 hectare non-irrigated and low cropped vineyard is focussed on producing only cool-climate shiraz (syrah).
We employ biodynamic practices which enable us to focus on soil health, the protection of indigenous microbes and creating an environment of ecological self-sufficiency.
Our winemaking approach is one of minimal interference; using wild yeast fermentation with no fining, filtration or pumping, creating a wine unique to our vineyard.
Would you like to buy the skin contact Pinot Gris?
Which tastes and looks like guava juice.
