'Puritan' Shiraz {no added preservative} 2011

This is my pick of the best wines from the 2011 Australia/New Zealand Organic Wine Show, which was judged by myself and four others in Sydney on Monday September 26.

BEST PRESERVATIVE FREE WINE at the Organic Wine Show Australia/ New Zealand 2011

This preservative-free red fair bursts out of the glass: heaps of joyful black fruit, but layers, too, of more complex flavour – garrigue (wild thyme, dried oregano) and game (rare seared venison, I think).
