Avondale Armilla Methode Cap Classique Brut NV

Armilla is vibrant with flavours of apple pie and biscuit, with a touch of lemon zest and honey. A superb integration of acidity allows for a dry and complex palate that is full of freshness and elegance.

Sparkling with joy, this fresh, versatile Brut is full of the verve that comes from Avondale's holistic way of making delicious, natural wines. Armilla embodies our celebration of life on the farm.
