The word 'Anima' refers to the vital life force or soul. Avondale's ethos "Terra Est Vita" - Soil is Life - follows their belief that the soil breathes life and soul into their wines. This Chenin Blanc is named 'Anima' because the lively minerals of Avondale's soils give this wine its own delicious, spirited character and extraordinary finesse. Avondale's Anima has a nose that develops intriguingly in the glass with notes of winter melon, pineapple, lime and a hint of honey that confirms the elegance and fullness of this softly wooded, supple wine. The palate is dense with fresh fruit flavors of gooseberry, quince and peach, are harmonizing together with the soulful minerality that gives this wine its name.
