Review

This was a nice, big Chard, buttered popcorn notes, lovely! Overall I’m most impressed with the brands focus on finding the most ethical practices available, that they are industry leaders and that they ensure accountability and transparency through independent ethical standard accreditors.

Review

Hard to go past a lovely chilled Chardonnay on a sunny afternoon, and I was fortunate enough to enjoy this lovely drop with friends on such an afternoon. Everyone enjoyed it, fruity and easy to drink. I love the Biodynamic farming practices, and a company wide commitment to farming and producing in a sustainable way.

Review

It was entirely drinkable, rich and balanced on the palate and with appealing colour and delicious texture. Drinking organic wines definitely feels cleaner in the body. I offered it to guests who also enjoyed it very much. Allowing nature to work its magic is definitely a concept that sits with me and how I approach my own life choices, and health. This commitment to organic certification is rare and valuable in the more established brands in Australia’s wine industry.
