No Evil Shiraz 2018 – Australia
No Evil Shiraz 2018
This No Evil Shiraz 2018 – Australia is sourced from fully certified Organic vineyards and made using minimal additions. The wines are Organic, Vegan friendly and made to EU guidelines for minimal preservatives (less than 30ppm Free Sulphur. A new benchmarking for affordable Organic Wines.)
This wine has a myriad of lifted characters led by blue and red berry fruit aromas with vanilla, fresh ground spices and ripe plums. Soft and seductive tannins help shape the wine yet, the weight of fruit ensures it remains cuddly and generous. Subtle mineral and spice, milk chocolate nuance and a fine, integrated acidity drive along enjoyable finish. The wine is looking great right now but, will also age gracefully with very careful cellaring for up to 10 years.
It is ideal to pair with Beef and Venison
Organic grapes are cultivated in vineyards banning the use of artificial inputs, including synthetic fertilizers, herbicides, fungicides and pesticides. In organic vineyards, a bountiful growing year relies instead on maintaining strict standards for soil health-for example, upping biodiversity through crop rotation.
No Added Sulfites
In the fermenting and bottling phase of winemaking, organic wines cannot contain added sulfites. Sulfites–also known as sulfur dioxide, a naturally occurring preservative in most wines and an inherent by-product of alcoholic fermentation-can be manually added by the winemaker to up the sulfite level in their bottle of vino, thereby increasing its lifespan. If a winemaker opts to add sulfites but otherwise follows organic farming practices, the wines can’t be labeled “organic.” However, they can be classified as wine “made from organic grapes.”
The exception: bottles produced in Europe and Canada, where organic wine standards allow small amounts of added sulfites as long as the total quantity doesn’t exceed 100 parts per million (ppm) for reds and 150 ppm for whites. (To compare, conventional wine standards in these countries allow sulfite levels up to 150 ppm for red wine and 200 ppm for white.)
