TASTING NOTES:

Balanced and supple fine-grained tannins complement the fine acid structure lending a persistence and beguiling complexity.

REGION: McLaren Vale

McLaren Vale is one of the great and oldest names of Australian wine. The birthplace of wine in South Australia, it lies just south of the capital city of Adelaide, offering multiplicity of soils and basking under an ideal Mediterranean climate. 

VINTAGE AND STYLE NOTES: 

The Shiraz grapes were harvested from a premium biodynamic and organically grown vineyard, in the premium McLaren Vale region. Upon arrival at the winery the grapes were partially crushed into a static red fermenter and inoculated with a Rhone yeast strain, which enhances the varietal characters and helps to encourage immediate fermentation. The juice was then pumped over the skins for seven days before the grapes were dropped with the aid of gravity into the press and the wine was pressed off the skins into pristine stainless steel. The wine then underwent malolactic fermentation in tank and was bottled early without the use of finings or Sulphur Dioxide additions, to retain its freshness, vibrancy and ‘preservative free’ provenance.

"Believing all wine should be Organic at the least and Preservative Free where possible Organic Hill is all about building something better for the future that is not only about us and our children but also you and your future. Why would we choose to consume a product containing sulphites, pesticides, herbicides and god knows what else! For us this was an accidental discovery that we have come to not only love, but look for in all aspects of our life right down to growing our own organic vegetables with the kids. In our journey of discovering and exploring the organic world that we have come to love so much we have created a bond not only with ourselves but with the very products we consume and produce. We hope you have as much joy in discovering Organic and Preservative Free wines as we have had."
