Tasting Notes

A deep ruby red the wine displays rich earthy characters, with a hint of pepper and spice. The full-bodied palate brims with spicy mulberry fruits and a fine tannin structure with a hint of musk and a fresh, balanced acidity giving a long lingering finish. No preservatives to this wine to produce a young, fresh and vibrant red to be consumed in its youth.

Winemaking:Upon arrival at the winery, the grapes were partially crushed into a static red fermenter and inoculated with a yeast strain, which helps to encourage immediate fermentation. The juice was then pumped over the skins 2-3 times a day for a period of 7 days. The grape must was then dropped with the aid of gravity into the press and the wine was pressed off the skins into a stainless steel tank. Malolactic fermentation followed and the wine was bottled early without finings or sulphur dioxide additions.

Organic Hill

Organic Hill's genesis encompasses a rich tapestry of experience acquired throughout Leon Hill's two-decade-long journey in the wine industry. This venture was deeply personal and underscored his health-conscious ethos. Leon's odyssey into the realm of organic winemaking commenced on a personal note in 2009. It was prompted by his discovery of gluten intolerance, which, although not classified as coeliac disease, necessitated a quest for gluten-free alternatives. This exploration led him to the vibrant world of organic shops scattered in and around Melbourne, many of which also stocked organic wines. A period of extensive trial and error ensued in search of solutions to his dietary sensitivities, ultimately revealing that preservatives were the culprits triggering his allergies. Consequently, the choice of organic wines emerged as a natural and sensible decision. As for the name, it was a straightforward decision. Given that Leon Hill himself is a 'Hill,' it was only fitting to incorporate his pioneering family surname, a symbol of authenticity. Organic Hill Wines' vineyard is strategically situated within the coveted Golden Triangle of McLaren Vale, sharing its neighbourhood with renowned wineries such as D'Arenberg, Angoves, and Maxwell.
