The first weekend in March 2012, with the Shiraz almost ready to harvest. The vineyard was flooded with 200mL of rain. Harvest was delayed by three weeks enabling the fruit to regain flavour. Thankfully, Organic Shiraz in our region has proved to be very resilient and able to escape disease.
Ultimate Eco Wine Packaging
Rosnay has been moving toward ecologically friendly packaging since 2009 when it first began to use the 370g “Lean + Green” Australian made wine bottles.
Even so, they have always felt that the conventional packaging of wine leaves much to be desired. The recycling rate for glass bottles in Australia is still only 40%, according to Clean Up Australia.
With each cask the saving in packaging is 20 x 750ml bottles, and even if these were “Lean + Green” bottles, each of which still contains 493g of embedded carbon emissions, that’s 10kg of CO2 emissions saved per cask.
