A brooding dark red in colour with ruby hues. The nose is alive with fresh, vibrant aromas, layered with punchy pepper and spice, and hints of ripe blackberries – all very characteristic of premium Riverland Shiraz. Juicy red and black berry flavours fill the palate. Balanced and supple fine-grained tannins complement the fresh fruit flavours and create a lovely soft mouthfeel. Fine acid structure is present, and a dry fragrant finish lends great poise and persistence. Brilliant drinking now.

REGION: RIVERLAND - BARMERA

Producing over 30% of Australia’s crush, the South Australian Riverland wine region boasts a warm and temperate climate, producing fruit to exacting and consistent standards. Now a pioneer of Organic growing, the Barmera sub-region was first planted in 1911.

WINEMAKING
The Shiraz grapes were harvested from a premium organically grown vineyard, in the Riv erland region near Berri in South Aus tralia. Upon arrival at the winery the gr apes were partially crushed into a static red fermenter and inoculated with a Bordeaux yeast strain, which helps t o encourage immediate fermentation. The juice was then pumped o ver the skins 2-3 times a day f or a period of 7 days. The gr ape must was then dropped with the aid of gr avity into the press and the wine was pr essed off the skins into a stainless steel tank. Malolactic fermentation followed and the wine was bottled early with finings or Sulphur Dio xide additions to retain its freshness and vibrancy.

"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."
