Gardners Ground Shiraz 2013

Certified organic. I didn’t know much about them and came across this on the website: Gardner’s Ground Vineyard is located within Rivers Road Organic Farms in Canowindra, 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 community’s commitment to responsible land stewardship. Vine planting began in 2001, now 14.5 hectares of the farm is under vines with the first vintage produced in 2004

Seems they practice what they preach. Wine originally tasted blind as part of line up of cool climate shiraz.
