Vegan Friendly Vino
These days there are plenty of vegan friendly alternatives to egg whites, skim milk powder, isinglass, etc. available for finishing wines. So vegan wines are becoming increasingly commonplace, especially reds but whites are coming along too. Best of all, these equivalents make no difference to the quality of the finished wine. So if you are vegan or like drinking with vegan mates, here’s a list of the good stuff which is friendly to both vegans and non-vegans alike.
Wines In This Pack
2 x Martins Vineyard Limited McLaren Vale Shiraz 2018 (RRP $150.00)
McLaren Vale, SA
Gold Medal, 97pts Sam Kim, 94pts James Halliday, 95pts The Real Review, 95pts Bob Campbell
This is unequivocally an even better edition of the Martin’s than we have seen previously, which is perhaps no surprise given it is a product of the 2018 vintage. Again, we see relatively low alcohol for a big Aussie red which, perhaps counterintuitively, allows the wine to appear as more fruit dense and concentrated than it might if it were half a degree or a full degree more ‘potent’. Fruits are blacks and blues, depth and length are superb, cedar and vanilla are a perfumed accompaniment to the fruit rich nose, and the tannins, polished, waxy and plentiful. The overall package, outstanding!
2 x Curtis Heritage Grenache 2021 (RRP $35.00)
2 x Schwarz 'The Grower' Barossa Shiraz 2019 (RRP $30.00)
Barossa Valley, SA
95pts James Halliday, 91pts Nick Stock
Vibrant and richly fruited, this is a lively yet slurpable beast. Plums, dark chocolate, cherries, beetroot, spice, pepper and charcuterie all competing for your attention. A cracker now and with 5-8 years ahead of it at least. Fruit is sourced from growers in the Barossa sub regions of Bethany, Vine Vale, Stonewell, Light Pass, Marananga & the Hallett Valley.
2 x Colab and Bloom Pinot Gris 2021 (RRP $27.50)
2 x Monterra Fleurieu Cabernets 2018 (RRP $25.00)
Fleurieu Peninsula, SA
3 x Gold Medals, 93pts Sam Kim, 93pts Kim Brebach
This is a rich, smooth and silken beast, replete with blackcurrant, brambles, fresh tobacco, and a whack of cedar. The palate is textual and offers excellent length. Has a long life ahead of it – worth decanting if you are going to drink it now.
2 x Claymore 'Horse With No Name' Riesling 2021 (RRP $20.00)
Langhorne Creek, SA
92pts James Suckling
Yet another excellent and very well priced Horse/Riesling from the Stable of Claymore and this one definitely deserves a name... on the nose we found talcum powder, florals, lemons and lime – same in your mouth along with a long, linear finish. A beauty! Ahh, there’s the name...
