Kurt Lorenzi, head winemaker, advises, ‘Our Daily Red is both an eco-friendly and economical option for consumers.’ This vegan-friendly, gluten-free red blend—Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Ruby Cabernet, Carignan—is certified organic and free of all vineyard use of pesticides, herbicides, fungicides and chemicals. Heady aromas of piquant spice and savoury herbs set the stage for a light-on-its-feet, focused and tart stream of red cherry and passion fruit interweaving with warm spice and pie cherry on the palate, replaying on aftertaste. Pour with pasta in tomato sauce or your favourite pizza. (Vic Harradine)
