Michael Olivier’s Minute of Wine #4, a Podcast, Asara Avalon 2012…

My podcast today is my Minute of Wine #4. It is about Asara Avalon 2012. Made at the Asara Wine Estate & Luxury Hotel in the Polkadraai Hills of the Stellenbosch Wine Appellation, the wine is a riff on the Italian Amarone wines. Listen about the unique viticultural and oenoligical processes used to create this truly special and unique wine.
