A wonderful wine and a scream for $25. Great drinking like this doesn't need to tear a hole in your back pocket.

Chardonnay has been made by Windowrie for nearly 30 years at their Cowra winery. Winemaker Anthony D'Onise says he is, "Looking to produce a modern example of Cowra's most famous variety." He's ticked that box with this release.

Pig in the House Organic Rosé 2017

The Australian Organic Market Report (2017) states that organic wine consumption has increased steadily over the past five years with the number of consumers said to have purchased organic wine increasing from 13% (2012) to 20% (2016). Some good numbers there in anyone's lingo.

Jason O'Dea, owner of Pig in the House with wife Rebecca, has noticed  this increase too with the demand for Rosé.

Pig In The House Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Organic Cabernet Sauvignon. And while the label states, "No animals were harmed in making this wine," it's anyone's guess where the fruit came from - little info on the label. Sigh.  But it is vegan friendly.

Gardner's Ground Shiraz 2013

A new label to me from New South Wales' Cowra region.

As per the website: Gardner's Ground Vineyard is located within Rivers Road Organic Farms, on Rivers Road in Canowindra (Cowra Region) New South Wales. The farm is a community title property with an organic covenant over the whole area. More than 10% of the community land has been dedicated to native trees and pasture. Replanting of previously cleared land provides a habitat for native wildlife, shelter belts and improves the quality of waterways on the farm and for everyone downstream. This is part of the communities commitment to responsible land stewardship.

Vine planting began in 2001 and 14.5 hectares of the farm is under vines with the first vintage produced in 2004.

Windowrie The Mill Shiraz 2015

Cracking value for twenty bucks. It sells like a Datsun and drives like a Lexus.

Scooping the pool at the 2016 NSW Wine Awards, this super value Shiraz bagged three trophies. Handy effort.

Windowrie Family Reserve Shiraz 2015

Pop 'Family Reserve' onto a label and you can expect the price to be jacked up a bit. Not here with only 25 bucks called for.

Pig in the House Organic Shiraz 2016

I first saw this wine from the 2014 vintage. Whilst the contents are good, I'm not convinced by the label. To be honest, it looks like a cheap supermarket 'homebrand' label than the more classy $30 market it is pitched for - the price has gone up five bucks since 2014 too. Put organic on it and the doors open to a new audience I suppose but you can be the judge.
