Low Sulphite Wine

Here we are lisitng some genuine artisan wines made properly with minimal use of additives, which don't fall within our categories of "organic, biodynamic or sulphite free". They are handmade on a very small scale by small family wineries combining traditional techniques with modern advancements.

Many of them farm organically or biodynamically although don't believe in having to pay annual fees to be certified as such. They don't see any reason why they should be charged extra for making wines as they've always been made.

These wines are very low in sulphites and any of the other 80+ chemicals commonly found in big brand factory produced wines. Many are fermented with the grapes' own natural yeast, and many have only a light filtering, some have none at all so all the goodness and natural anti oxidants are left in the wine.

They are a very healthy lifestyle choice, and of course when buying these wines you will also be helping small dedicated winemakers, as without customers they would not be able to continue making these fantastic wines..

  3. Grangehurst Shiraz Cabernet Reserve

    John Platter 4.5 Stars

    Grangehurst Shiraz Cabernet Reserve is a fabulous wine, big, opulent, rich and round. The extensive winery ageing gives it a mature soft palate, not the racier style you get with younger wines. Lovely flavours of dark fruit with noticeable oak, very smooth of course with a long lingering finish. 

    Free sulphur: 10

    Sustainable farming: Yes

  4. Rainbows End Family Reserve 2015

    94 Points Tim Atkin

    Nominated for 5 Star Platter

    91 Points James Suckling

    The Family Reserve is the flagship wine from Rainbows End - a superb Bordeaux blend, complex and elegant, really showing how the best South African reds can compete with France and the rest of the world. As well as power and fruit, this wine also has elegance and structure. It's beautifully made - Anton Malan is a superb hands on winemaker.

    Rainbows End is one of my very favourite wineries and is a name to watch out for. I expect Anton will go on to achieve great things in the South African wine world.
