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).
2012 and 2015 vintages available on request - extremely limited!
