Pig In The House Shiraz 2016
- Certified Organic
- Vegan Suitable
Trophy for the Best Organic or Biodynamic Wine of the 2017 Royal Melbourne Wine Show & a Gold Medal (96/100) in its class.
Also short listed for the top wine in show, not bad considering it is a $20-25 wine up against some wines from some of the big players, retailing between in $30-$100.
Vibrant cherry red with purples edges. Aromatics of dark berry fruits, blackberry, and ripe cherries, black pepper and warm spices rounded out with a hint of vanilla. The palate is a well balanced, with primary fruit purity, and exceptional flavour density. Flavours linger and flavour complexity develops once opened so give it a bit of time to breath.
Wine Front Review
Indeed this is a good shiraz. It’s fruit-driven, it’s clean, it’s well-ripened, it gets the overall balance right. It’s damn tasty. Berries, graphite, the suggestion of asphalt. It’s punchy throughout and satisfying to finish. The wine itself: no hesitation in recommending it.

Pig in The House wines are grown and made in Cowra New South Wales. We believe that our organic farming practices produce wines which are unique to our region. We planted vineyard in the mid 1990s on land which was once a free-range piggery; so free that the pigs were often in the house. The locals still ask whether the pig is still in the house. Most of the time the answer is no.
