Avinius is our reference wine since Les Acàcies was founded. It is the perfect balance between the character of the merlot, very adapted in the region, with the elegance and freshness of the syrah. Both together make a great blend with good aging potential.
Harvested and sorted by hand and then the varieties ferment for separate. Once the fermentation is finished we make the blend and transfer the wine into 225-300L French oak barrels where the malolactic fermentation is done. The total aging time is about 12-14 months, depending on the vintage.
The aspect is clean and the colour is ruby with violet hints, similar to the typical Mediterranean wines. In the nose we can find dried figs and plums but it is still fresh with some strawberry notes. It has also some species and vanilla notes from the oak barrel. It has a good texture in the mouth and a persistent finish.
