Choose from last year’s Best Organic Red Wine, Waverley Hills CW Reserve Shiraz, or Wine Bloggers’ Choice, Waverley Hills Shiraz/Mourvèdre/Viognier 2010 & 2011 - also a Michelangelo Platinum award winner. The cool sophistication of Reyneke Chenin Blanc 2013, awarded Best White Wine and Overall Winner in the Organically Grown Grapes category, will change your mind forever. Also try this year's Best Value Green Wine and Michelangelo Gold winner – Earthbound Chenin Blanc 2014. Sustainability might be serious business, but it also makes for seriously good wine.

Notes of blackcurrant, lavender and plum. Brimming with intense red fruit flavours and caramel with approachable tannins.
