Zooming in for Organic wine

Recently, I was invited to take part in an online wine tasting hosted by Hayes Family Wines and Australian Organic Ltd

Tastings on Zoom appear to be the closest thing to getting a large group into a cellar door or licensed venue at the moment, and I've got to say, it was very well organised. Such tastings have been a regular event for the business over the last month.

Langmeil Wattle Brae Riesling 2019



How good is Riesling after a long day? Here's a refreshing examples from the Eden Valley sure to hit the mark.

Langmeil Rough Diamond Grenache 2019


An easy slurp. Lovers of medium bodied wines would enjoy wading through a glass or two of this.

Honey Moon Vineyard Shiraz 2012

A charming and gracious Shiraz from the Adelaide Hills. Although from a low yielding vintage, the elegance and restrained power of this excellent wine are captivating.

Arfion Snowflake Savignin 2018


I feel this is a wine which you'll either love or not so much. A good aperitif as the evening chill starts to set in for some perhaps?
