About

At the base of the Mount Barker Summit in the Adelaide Hills sits Ngeringa – a small, straw-bale winery nestled between their vineyards on land certified organic and biodynamic for nearly 30 years – where they strive for the purest expression of terroir and for perfection in cool-climate wines. Ngeringa operates as a biodynamic closed system farm with vineyards, vegetable gardens, orchards and paddocks that are inhabited by Scottish Highland cattle, sheep, chickens and guinea fowl.

WineThis early bottled Syrah is full of lifted primary red berry fruit, violets, blueberries and liquorice that want to jump out of the glass. The palate has a little spritz of carbon dioxide gas a remnant of primary fermentation, and is full of rich, red berries, plums and darker fruit. Gentle extraction of tannins from the grape skins during the fermentation process has yielded a soft textured, approachable wine. (Vegan-friendly, Preservative Free)
