2019 Preservative Free Shiraz – PF 500
Vegan, preservative free, organic, biodynamic. Colloquially I call it the health drink. A very hard wine to make well, most are flawed as no sulphur means a massive risk. I have been making this for 10 years now and we are considered market leaders for this wine. The secret is to use clean fruit, well grown, so nothing can go wrong. 100% Shiraz, no 220 (sulphur), very purple colour, drink chilled, fruity and soft. Also available in 500 ml bottles. Best to drink it the day you open it, or put it in the fridge.
Stewed plum, some eucalypt forest and some fig jam. “Surprise Surprise” as Gomer Pile (USMC) would say – its wine.
An exotic nose, reminiscent of the Lindemans St George in the early 1980’s that divided the wine world, but certainly a statement.
The charm is the flavour, not heavy like you would anticipate, soft with that undertone of stewed fruits.
To keep the wine and watch it change won’t give any benefit. It’s for now or a couple of years, it’s so vibrant it jumps out of the glass.
